Two Men Arrested After Older Laois Man Left Terrified In His Own Home

The incident occurred in Stradbally earlier this year.

Two men have been arrested in relation to a break-in at an elderly man's home in Laois earlier this year.

The incident occurred in the Strabally area last April.

Gardaí say the man - who was woken up and met by the culprits in his kitchen - was left terrified in his own home and had to walk a distance to a neighbour's house for help.

Portlaoise, Ballylynan and Stradbally Gardaí have been investigating since and have made two arrests.

One man has been charged and has appeared before Portlaoise District Court. 

A file is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
