Aggravated Burglary, Rocky Valley, Co. Wicklow

The Gardaí at Bray Garda Station are investigating an aggravated burglary that occurred at a house in Rocky Valley, Kilmacanoge, Co. Wicklow on Tuesday 31st March 2015.


Shortly after 9pm, the home owner was at home in the kitchen cleaning up after dinner. His wife had gone out for the evening. Two men entered the house through the front door and hit the man on the back of the head. The man fell to the floor and was bleeding from his head. One of the raiders pointed a gun at him and demanded money and valuables. The second raider placed a jacket under the man’s head. The raider with the gun searched the house and found some sterling notes. He received a phone call and told the second raider to bring the man into the sitting room. They placed a shirt and a towel over the man’s head so he couldn’t see their faces.


The raider who had the gun was now armed with a large kitchen knife. He cut the leg off the man’s trousers. They tied his hands and feet together with cable ties and left the house. A dark coloured BMW 1 Series car was seen nearby with one man in the driver’s seat.


• Gardai are appealing to anyone with information about this incident to come forward.

• Gardaí are appealing to anyone in the Kilmancanoge area and may have seen suspicious activity or the BMW Series 1 car to come foward.

• The witness described these raiders as young, late teens or early twenties of slim to medium build. He was able to get a good look at their footwear and described them as below.
