GARDAí are investigating an aggravated burglary at a house in Lismore Park.
At approximately 2.15 this morning it is reported that two males kicked in the front door of a house in the city estate. One of the culprits produced a sharp object and ran upstairs to try and gain entry to the bedrooms, which were occupied by two students.
They tried to force their way in, but failed. They demanded money and phones and left a short time later. Nobody was injured in the incident. The scene is being preserved for examination.
Gardaí are seeking information from anyone who may have witnessed suspicious activity in the area or who know anything about the incident.
