The woman was tied up and threatened by two men who took an undisclosed amount of cash from the house.

A WOMAN WAS tied up and threatened with a knife during a burglary in Dublin yesterday morning.

Gardaí at Clontarf in Dublin are seeking information from the public in relation to the aggravated burglary, which occurred at a house on Green Field Road, Sutton, Dublin 13 at approximately 8.20am yesterday morning.

A woman in her 50s, who was the occupant of the house,  had just returned home when two men, one armed with a knife, threatened her.

They then tied up the woman and took an undisclosed amount of cash. The raiders left the house in a grey BMW 5 series with a 03-D registration. Gardaí say this was a false registration.

The raiders abandoned this car on Lauders Lane, Burrow Road, Sutton a short time later. It is believed that the raiders may have changed cars at this location.

The raiders are described as follows:

  • Man in his 20s, average height and build, navy tracksuit, baseball cap, scarf covering his face. Spoke with a Dublin accent and carried the knife
  • Man in his 20s, average height and build.

Any person who may have seen anything unusual at the above locations in Sutton or who may have seen the grey BMW is asked to contact the incident room at Clontarf 01 666 4800, the Garda Confidential Line 1 800 666 111 or any garda station.
