Aggravated Burglary in Ballinteer, Dublin 16 on 3/10/21

Gardaí in Dundrum are investigating an Aggravated Burglary at The Heights, Woodpark, Ballinteer, Dublin 16 between 5.30pm and 6pm on Sunday 3 October 2021.

A blue Peugeot 307 (reg: 05-SO-2120) was seen driving in the area and parking at an apartment block across the road from the victim’s home. 

CCTV from the apartment block shows the car parking up and a male suspect getting out. He then walks towards the victim’s home while a female remains in the Peugeot.

The suspect is thought to have entered the residence at 5.30pm approx. The suspect spent around twenty minutes searching the house while the victim was watching television in his front room, unaware of what was going on in the rest of the house. 

Eventually the suspect entered the front room where he attempted to take the victim’s wallet from his pocket. The man struggled with the suspect who took a poker from beside the fire place and began to hit him with it, striking his arms. The victim tried to raise the alarm by calling out to his neighbour. The suspect soon left the premises. 

Subsequently it was noticed that some valuables, including some nursing medals, and cash had been taken. The suspect returned to the blue Peugeot and its female occupant who had parked across the road. The two then drove away from the scene via Balinteer Rd. The Peugeot car is known to have driven northbound on the M50 later the same day.

The victim has since upgraded his home security and installed new locks, CCTV, alarms and sensor lights.

 Description ofFemale:

Garda Appeal: 

  • Can you help in identifying the male and female involved in this incident?
  • Gardaí are eager to locate the blue Peugeot 307 registration number: 05 SO 210. Do you know where the car is now or have you seen it? Have you been offered it for sale since?
  • Have you been offered the nursing medals for sale? They are very old items and very rare so may stand out in people’s minds.
