Inishowen Garda Superintendent Eugene McGovern said the incident occurred at 9.15pm at a house at Oakgrove, Millfield.

The men entered the house, looking for someone ‘who was not there’.

Superintendent McGovern said a woman and children were ‘extremely traumatised’ by the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Buncrana Garda Station on 074 93 20540.
