Gardaí are appealing for witnesses in relation to an aggravated burglary in Tipperary.

At around 1.30am, on April 28 Gardaí say they received a report that four men, all wearing balaclavas, had broken into a house in the Ballinderry area of Borrisokane.

"The four men threatened the occupant of the home and a confrontation occurred. The four men then left the scene empty handed in a silver car. The occupant of the home was not injured during the incident.

"Gardaí from Borrisokane and Nenagh Garda Station attended the scene and carried out a patrol of the area but the car was not located. The local Scenes of Crime Unit also attended and carried out a technical examination of the scene," said a statment.

Gardaí say they are appealing to anyone who was in the Ballinderry area between 1am-1.45am, particularly drivers with dash cam footage, to contact Nenagh Garda Station on 067-50459, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800-666-111 or any Garda Station.
