Burglary in Drogheda, Co. Louth on the 30/1/15

Evofit - burglary in Cherrybrook Drive, Drogheda, Co. Louth

The Gardaí at Drogheda Garda Station are investigating a burglary that occurred at a house in Cherrybrook Drive, Drogheda, Co. Louth on Friday 30th January 2015.

Shortly after 7pm, a woman, who had just arrived home and was upstairs trying on a dress she had bought for a party the following night, heard a knock at her front door.

The woman went downstairs to open the door and saw a man dressed in dark clothing standing at the door. This man did not speak to the woman. He immediately punched her in the face causing her to fall onto the ground. The man entered the house and put his hand over the woman’s mouth. He demanded money and threatened the woman. He dragged the woman into the sitting room where she managed to pull his hat off his head and got a good look at his face. The man dragged the woman upstairs to get her handbag and her bank card. The woman struggled with the man and scratched him. The man was sweating and beginning to get out of breath. He brought the woman downstairs and demanded the pin number for her bank account. The woman gave him a pin number and he wrote it on his hand. He pushed the woman onto the floor and tied her hands behind her back. He left through the front door. The woman managed to free herself and ran out the back door and over a wall into her Neighbours house to get help.
