GARDAÍ ARE APPEALING for witnesses after a man and a woman were injured in an aggravated burglary in Dublin’s south inner city. 

The incident happened at about 11.30 pm last night when two men entered the house in Merton Park and assaulted the occupants before leaving the scene in a white van. 

The man and woman were taken to St James’ Hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries. 

Gardaí say that the van the assailants escaped in was a small white Ford Transit Connect van with a roof rack and a partial registration beginning 06-D.

Anyone who was in the Merton Park area in or around the time of the incident and who may have seen this vehicle or anything suspicious are being asked to come forward.

The area around Merton Park where the incident took place is commonly referred to as ‘the Tenters’.
