Gardai in Wicklow have released an image of a man they believe was involved in a terrifying home invasion near Roundwood last December.Roundwood-car

The young man, said to be in his teens, was part of a four-man gang that forced their way into the home of three elderly brothers on the morning of Friday, December 13, 2013.

Two of the brothers were taken to hospital as a result of the ordeal and they are said to be living in fear since the attack.

The gang entered the house at around 6am and terrorised the occupants for over an hour. The raiders were unsuccessful in their efforts to break into a gun press, but ransacked the home and took a small amount of cash.

The gang took off in a dark green two-door BMW (pictured) in the direction of Roundwood.
