TWO MORE TEENAGERS have been arrested in connection with an incident during which a woman was threatened in a house in Dublin.

The incident occurred at a house in Citywest earlier this month. The woman was threatened and assaulted by five men with knives.

The men fled the scene with a car taken from the house and what gardaí described as a “substantial” amount of cash.

The woman was alone in the house at the time. She did not require medical attention after the incident.

The vehicle was later found in the Glenshane area near Tallaght.

On 12 November, a 17-year-old was charged over the incident.
