Two men arrested after robbery and assault in Meath

Gardaí arrested two men in Athlone on Saturday night in connection with an aggravated burglary which took place at a house in Co Meath early last week.

The men were arrested in connection with an investigation into a robbery at a house in Hill of Down, Co. Meath on Monday May 16 in which a man in his 60s suffered a serious but not life-threatening assault in danger.

The gang fled with jewelry and a sum of cash.

In a follow-up investigation, Gardaí carried out a warrant search of a residential property in the Midlands on Saturday evening, seizing several items and making two arrests.

The men, aged 40 and 21, were taken to Kells Garda station where they were held under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984 and remain in Garda custody.
