Gardaí are on the hunt for a gang of three burglars, after they terrorized a farmer in North Dublin, as reported by the Independent.
The incident occurred at lunchtime on Monday, when the farmer was threatened by the thieves with knives and slash hooks at his home in Ballyboughal, north Co. Dublin. The incident unfolded when the farmer returned home to his property, to stumble upon the three-man gang having broken into his garage.
The farmer then used his car to try and block the thieves in and prevent them from making an escape. The gang rammed their vehicle into his car in an attempt to make their escape. According to reports, the thugs then threatened to slit the farmer's throat, before making off with their stolen goods.
It is understood that they stole a number of power tools during the theft and they escaped in a silver coloured car. Anybody with any information is urged to contact Gardaí.
