Gardaí are appealing for witnesses in relation to an aggravated burglary in Co. Tipperary in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
At around 1.30am Gardaí received a report that four men, all wearing balaclavas, had broken into a house in the Ballinderry area of Borrisokane.
The four men threatened the occupant of the home and a confrontation occurred but left the scene empty handed in a silver car.
The occupant of the home was not injured during the incident.
Gardaí from Borrisokane and Nenagh Garda Station attended the scene and carried out a patrol of the area but the car was not located. The local Scenes of Crime Unit also attended and carried out a technical examination of the scene.
Gardaí are appealing to anyone who was in the Ballinderry area between 1am-1.45am, particularly drivers with dash cam footage, to contact Nenagh Garda Station on 067-50459, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800-666-111 or any Garda Station.
