Evofit - Hijacking, Jamestown Road, Finglas,Dublin on 5/7/21

Gardaí in Finglas are investigating a hijacking incident that took place outside a business park on Jamestown Road on the 5 July 2021.

On the date in question the victim pulled up to the entrance of the business park and got out of his car to open the gate. While waiting for the gate to open he was approached by a male suspect holding a hatchet who got into the car and attempted to drive it away. The suspect could not initially start the car so he got out and chased the injured party asking him how to start the car.

Eventually the suspect got the car started and drove away. The car was abandoned and subsequently recovered not far from the scene of the hijacking. The above evofit was supplied for the suspect by the injured party.

Garda Appeal:

  • - The hijacked car was a burgundy Mercedes 5 Series. It was abandoned at Creston Avenue a short distance away. Did you see the car in question on the morning of the hijacking?
  • - Do you recognise the male suspect in the evofit?
