Woman in hospital after robbery by man impersonating garda

A woman has been hospitalised following a roadside robbery in Co Wexford.

She was driving to work when she was stopped by what was described as a dark-coloured, older type Ford Mondeo, which had a blue flashing light attached, giving the impression it was a garda car.

It happened at Corramacorra Junction, Murrintown, off the R733 at around 6.25 this morning.

A man impersonating a garda threatened the woman, assaulted her and took a sum of money.

She was taken to Wexford General Hospital for treatment.

The man left the scene in the Mondeo which was driven by a second man in the direction of Murrintown.

Gardaí are appealing for anyone with information on the incident, or on the Mondeo, to contact them.
