Two men charged after Gardai assaulted in Milford


Two men have been charged and a teenager arrested after three Gardai were assaulted in a house in Milford at the weekend.

Two Gardai were hospitalised and one treated at the scene for injuries they sustained while responding to reports of a potential breach of Covid-19 regulations.

The incident unfolded when Gardai were called to a rented domestic property on midday on Saturday.

Gardai engaged with those present utilising the 4Es approach of engage, explain, encourage and enforce in support of the public health regulations.

During the course of the engagement, three members of An Garda Siochana were assaulted.

Two males in their 20s were arrested and taken to Milford Garda Station and have since been charged.

They are due to appear before Letterkenny District Court on March 29th.
