An elderly midlands couple has been assaulted in an aggravated burglary.

Gardaí are investigating the incident, which saw two people assault the man and woman, who are in their 80s and 70s respectively, at their home in Cartron Drive in Athlone on Friday evening.

A sum of cash was also taken during the course of the burglary.

The male homeowner received treatment for his injuries at the scene, and a technical examination has already been carried out.
