A MAN IS due to appear in court this morning charged in relation to a burglary in Co Cork in which a woman was attacked. 

The incident happened in the early hours of yesterday morning at a house in the Mahon area. 

A man, aged in his late 20s, broke into the house at around 2.30am. 

When discovered by the homeowner, the man proceeded to assault her using a metal travel mug. 

The man fled the scene when disturbed by another member of the household. 

The woman, aged in her 50s, sustained injuries to her head. 

No property was stolen from the premises. 

The man was later arrested and taken to Bridewell Garda Station where he is currently detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984. 

He has since been charged in connection with the incident and is due to appear before Cork District Court this morning. 

Comments are closed as legal proceedings are ongoing.
