An Garda Síochána report that one man was hospitalised and another arrested following an attempted aggravated burglary at an apartment on Lynch's Quay, Cobh, Co Cork on Sunday, 8 March.
Gardaí were notified of an incident and arrived on the scene at approximately 2am, where it was found that a man in his 40's was allegedly broken into, assaulted and received multiple stab wounds.
He was taken via ambulance to Cork University Hospital where he is currently receiving treatment for 'serious injuries'.
