Gardai in Enniscorthy are hunting for three men who committed a robbery in broad daylight in Bunclody at the weekend. An employee was forced into a back office of a well-known business premises before the raiders made their getaway.

The crime was committed in the middle of the day on Saturday at the local Vodafone store.

According to Gardai, three males entered the premises just before 3.00pm on Saturday.

'The males entered the store and looked around the shop and then spoke to a staff member,' said the Garda.

The intruders then forced the staff member into a back office.

The Garda spokesperson said a small amount of damage was done to the premises but the gang made off with some phones.

It's believed the gang made their getaway in a car and the Gardai have made an appeal for information from people who may have been in the vicinity of the shop at the time.

The incident may also be linked to a similar crime that was committed in a Vodafone store in Athy earlier that same day.

Enniscorthy Gardai Station can be contacted at 053-9242580.
