Two people were treated in hospital following an aggravated burglary in Cork this morning.

Three men, armed with implements, broke into a house in Monastery Hill off Blarney Street at 2.40am.

A man and a woman living in the house were allegedly assaulted and taken to Cork University Hospital.

Their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Two other occupants in the house were unharmed.

The three suspects fled the scene but two men, aged 32 and 25, were arrested a short time later and are being held at Gurranbraher Garda Station.

The third man escaped on foot.

Gardaí have appealed for anyone with information to contact Gurranabraher Garda Station on 021-4946200.
