Masked men break into home
A MASKED duo who broke into the home of an elderly woman, turned and fled after coming across the bed-ridden lady.
On Sunday night, two men gained access to the house at the Belmont estate through the back door. They came face-to-face with the elderly occupant of the property, who is aged in her late-80s.
They very quickly turned around and left, according to Detective Inspector Frank Keenaghan of Bray Garda Station. The men did not take anything and while she got a fright, the woman was not injured during her ordeal.
Det Insp Keenaghan said that it all hap- pened very quickly. He has urged anyone who saw anything in the area to get in touch, in particular any vehicles parked in unusual circumstances where you wouldn’t normally expect to see cars parked.
Meanwhile, a burglary took place the previous Thursday, February 9, at Woodbrook Lawn in Bray. A youth was disturbed by the the homeowner and ran off.
The burglar made off with some items including jewellery and cash.
