Gardai in Wexford are investigating an aggravated break-in that occurred at a house in Taghmon last week.

The incident happened at a house on Ross Road at around 11.30 p.m. on Thursday.

A spokesperson for the Gardai said two men called to the front door of a house and forced their way inside and threatened the resident who is believed to be in his 50s.

'The person in the house was physically assaulted and taken to hospital by the Gardai,' said the spokesperson.

'The person sustained injuries,' he added.

The Gardai are appealing for witnesses who may have been in the vicinity of Ross Road around that time.
