GARDAÍ ARRESTED  TWO  teens in Dublin following an aggravated burglary in the early hours of this morning.

Just before 1am, this morning two intruders entered the house in the Rossfield area of Tallaght, armed with a bread knife. Following a confrontation with the occupants of the house, they fled the scene on foot empty handed. One of the occupants, a man in his 40s, sustained minor injuries in the incident.

During follow-up searches, gardaí arrested two males, both 16-years-old in relation to the incident a short time later. One of them has been released and a file is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions and one is still in custody at Tallaght Garda Station.
