At around 5.30am, a man wearing a mask and armed with what is believed to be a knife, broke into a house in the Kennedy Park area of Limerick City.

The man in question threatened the two occupants of the house and demanded money. He then assaulted one of the occupants and left the scene with a handbag containing cash.

The occupants of the house were "extremely shaken" by the incident but did not require medical treatment.

Gardaí in Roxboro Road were contacted after the suspect left the home and attended immediately. They then carried out house-to-house enquiries, gathered CCTV from the area and carried out an examination of the scene.

Following the enquiries carried out, Gardaí conducted searches in the Southside of Limerick City on 16 October 16.

During the course of these searches Gardaí discovered clothing believed to have been worn by the suspect, a knife, and items stolen from the home. As part of the same operation Gardaí arrested a man aged in his 30s.

He was brought to Roxboro Road Garda Station where he was detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984 and has since been charged.
