A man and a woman have been arrested as part of an investigation into an aggravated burglary at the home of a pensioner last week.
The incident occurred at a house at Bull's Lane, Blackpool Road last Friday.
Both suspects are in their 30s.
The woman, who was detained at Togher Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984, has since been charged and will appear before Cork City District Court today.
The man was still being detained at Mayfield Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.
It is alleged the two individuals forced entry to a house. A man, aged in his 70s, received minor injuries during the course of the incident.
A sum of cash was taken and some personal belongings.
