Reports of suspected burglars ramming Garda bike in Dublin

The Garda member was been taken to hospital following the incident.


There are reports of an incident taking place last month, involving a group of alleged burglars ramming a Garda while on their motorbike


Speaking to JOE, a spokesperson for the Gardaí stated that they are investigating a suspected assault incident on a 27-year-old male Garda member that occurred at Glenalbyn Road in Stillorgan.


The incident is reported to have occurred at approximately 5pm on Saturday 7 August.


The Garda member is reported to have observed three males acting in a suspicious manner at a residence, and subsequently blocked their path with his motorcycle after identifying himself as a Garda.

The males then entered their vehicle and collided with the motorcycle, injuring the Garda.


The males then allegedly threatened the Garda before fleeing the scene, and the Garda member was then taken to St Vincent's Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.


No arrests have been made and investigations are ongoing.
