At approximately 7.35pm on the evening of Monday, November 18th, 2019, six men entered the home of a man, armed with a number of weapons and a firearm, and proceeded to assault him. The man received a number of injuries as a result of the incident.
Gardaí have issued an appeal for anyone who may have information in relation to this incident to come forward.
Gardaí are particularly interested in the movements of the small white van, which was observed entering and exiting the Coneyburrow Estate in Lifford between 7.30pm and 7.40pm. Gardaí want to speak to the owner/ driver of this van to eliminate it from their enquiries.
- The make and model of the van is not clear from CCTV footage, however gardaí believe it is, or is similar to, a Citroen Berlingo or Peugeot Partner.
- The van travelled to Coneyburrow from the Clady / Cloughfin direction and entered the estate at 7.33pm. The van is later observed exiting the estate at 7.38pm towards Castlefin.
- Anyone who recognises this van or is aware of its movements on the night of November 18th, 2019, is asked to come forward.
Anyone who was in the vicinity of the Coneyburrow Estate on the night in question between the hours of 7.15pm and 8pm is also asked to contact gardaí.
In January 2020, investigating gardaí arrested and detained one male under Section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act, 1939.
Investigating gardaí continue to work closely with the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) in relation to this ongoing investigation.
