Gardaí at Wicklow are investigating an aggravated burglary that occurred at a house at Three Mile Water, Brittas Bay, shortly after 8pm last night, Thursday, the 26th May 2011.
Four masked men entered the house, one was carrying a knife, and threatened the only occupant – a woman in her thirties.
They managed to get away with a number of items of jewellery which have a substantial value. There is no direction of travel or better description of the suspects.
Gardaí are appealing to any potential witnesses who were in the area between 7pm and 9pm to contact them on 0404 60140, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
We are making a similar appeal to anyone who may have seen suspicious activity in this area in the week prior to the aggravated burglary to contact them.
