Man suffers fractured skull after axe attack by masked men in supermarket

29th October 2021


A man has been hospitalised with serious injuries including a fractured skull following an axe attack in a Midlands supermarket.

The targeted and violent assault happened in the Tesco store in Tullamore at around 8.30pm last night.

Two men wearing masks and armed with an axe entered the store and attacked a man, aged in his 30s, in front of horrified shoppers.

The victim was struck a number of times in the head and body during the vicious assault before the suspects fled the scene.

They escaped in a dark-coloured vehicle which sped away from the store and has not yet been located.

Emergency services were alerted and the injured man was taken to the Midlands Regional Hospital in Tullamore for treatment.

He remains in a serious condition after suffering multiple injuries including a suspected fractured skull and a dislocated shoulder.

These injuries have been described as non-life threatening.

The scene at the Tesco store was cordoned off to allow for a technical examination by Garda forensic specialists.

No arrests have yet been made and investigators are attempting to identify the vehicle and suspects involved.

Gardaí believe the incident was a targeted attack and enquiries are ongoing.

A source told Indpendent.ie: “This individual suffered extremely serious injuries and all efforts are being made to identify those involved.

“A case conference has been held due to the seriousness of the incident and the man remains in hospital.

“The nature of the incident, in which two suspects wore masks before carrying out the attack, indicates that it was targeted,” the source added.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Tullamore Garda Station 057-9327600 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.
