GARDAÍ ARE APPEALING for the public’s help following an aggravated burglary in south Dublin.

The incident happened in the Osprey/ Orwell area of Templeogue at around 11.20am yesterday morning.

The woman was alone in the house when the man, said to have a very thin, pock marked face and pale skin, broke in and assaulted her.

The suspected offender is aged between 40 and 50 years of age and is of average height with short hair.

He is clean shaven and spoke with an Irish accent.

He was wearing black clothing, a dark coloured baseball cap and dark sunglasses during the incident. He may also have been wearing a sleeveless jacket.

The man received a number of scratches to his face during the incident and a cut to his right finger – wounds that will still be fresh.
