Wexford Woman Recovering In Hospital Following Attack

WEXFORD WOMAN RECOVERING IN HOSPITAL FOLLOWING ATTACK

A young Wexford woman is recovering in hospital following an alleged hatchet attack at her home on Monday evening.

The incident happened shortly after 5pm as the woman slept on a couch.

Nicole Dwyer claims she was struck in the face when a man entered her home suggesting he was allegedly owed money by a man known to her.

The raider is understood to have threatened to remove a TV from the house as collateral for the amount he was owed.

When a man present objected to this it is alleged the suspect swung a hatchet hitting Nicole to the side of her nose and mouth.

South East Radio News understands the hatchet was later discovered in nearby wasteland.

The 20 year-old from The Green, Clonard is receiving reconstructive treatment to her face at Saint James’s Hospital in Dublin.

Gardai in Wexford are investigating the incident and a file on the matter is being prepared for the DPP.
