Last month, Eva Sutton (90) was tied up in her own home up in her home and viciously attacked by two men.

The brutal 30 minute assault left her with a punctured lung, broken nose and broken ribs after two thugs tied her up before beating her.

The two thugs broke into her home on the Dublin Road, Bray, Co Wicklow at approximately 5am on Thursday 10 September.

The raiders smashed through the front door while the elderly lady was asleep in a downstairs room.

Ms Sutton attempted to call for help by pressing a panic button attached to a necklace, but her attackers ripped the alarm from her neck.

After the attack, he son, Tom Sutton, said he was unsure whether his mother would ever return to the house.

Ms Sutton has lived in the house for most of her life.

'They threw her around like a rag doll,' he said after the incident.

Mr Sutton praised the reaction of local people after the attack.

'We have been astonished by the response of the people of Bray and their disgust at what happened,' said Tom, who lives in the UK but is currently in Ireland alongside his sister Amanda who lives in Roundwood.

'We say there is no community these days but there clearly is. I spend a day working on the front door and was stopped every few minutes. We've been astonished by the kindness and the generosity.'

The site for sale has two houses on it and is on sale for €850,000.

No arrest has yet to be made in the case.
