 Gardaí believe that this incident is connected to an aggravated burglary which occurred in the Castletroy area on the same morning of the 17th February 2013 at approximately 06.30am.

At approximately 04.50am a security man was doing his rounds at the industrial estate when he noticed a Silver Suzuki SUV parked beside a unit. As he approached he noticed that the SUV had rammed into the roller door. There were two male occupants in the SUV who were joined by a third male, who emerged from the side of the premises and got into the rear, before they drove away. The security guard recorded a partial Registration number; 02C162**. There are two digits missing at the end.

At approximately 06.30am, a man awoke to find two intruders in his bedroom. One of the raiders grabbed a laptop from his bedroom. The injured party shouted at the two males to leave his property and a struggle ensued. The injured party was pushed out into the hallway where he was stabbed a number of times with a blade by raider 1. He managed to force one of the raiders down the stairs and the second raider fled the house. A second housemate observed a Suzuki leaving the scene and observed partial Registration to be 02C****.
