Attempted car-jacking in Co. Roscommon

There were reports last night of an attempted robbery at gunpoint near Kiltoom Cemetery on the Roscommon Road. According to Cllr. John Keogh, a driver pulled over after being flashed by another vehicle travelling behind him. The man came to a stop near Kiltoom Graveyard where his vehicle was approached by two men, one of whom pulled a gun on him. The driver was travelling with one other man and it is believed this startled the would-be car-jackers. No-one was hurt in the incident. Anyone with any information about suspicious vehicles or behavior in the area is asked to call Roscommon Garda Station on 090-6492609.
