A security guard who was assaulted by a group of up to six men was then locked into the boot of his own car for nine hours.

Gardaí are investigating the incident in which a security guard at an Irish Rail compound was assaulted, before he was locked into a car boot.

The alleged incident occurred at approximately 5am on Tuesday morning, December 5.

Gardaí report the victim to be a member of the security personal employed at the Irish Rail compound in the Kilbricken, Mountrath area in Co Louth.

The assault occurred when the victim, who arrived for work, was approached by a number of men who assaulted him and locked him into his car boot before they escaped.

Speaking on RTE Radio One's Drivetime, Irish Rail spokesperson Barry Kenny said the man was securing the compound at the time the assault occurred.

"The man was assaulted by a group of peopl e," Mr Kenny said.

"They put him into the boot of his own car, locked him in, and stole devices from the site.

"The man remained there until his colleague arrived for the afternoon shift at 2.30pm.

"He was locked into the boot for almost nine hours, and he was injured as a result of the assault."

He continued; "He is very, very shaken. He suffered a blow to the head during the assault too.

"We obviously hope he makes a full recovery.

"It was a very distressing incident as you can understand.

"There were between five and six men involved in the attack.

"It was very much pre-meditated."

Mr Kenny said a number of items were stolen from the site and Irish Rail are currently working with gardaí in a bid to recover them.

The compound where the incident occurred is in a rural area.

The assailants left the area in a vehicle, of which th e make and model is unknown at this time.

Gardaí said they are now investigating an incident of assault and false imprisonment.

Anyone who may have witnessed unusual activity in the vicinity are asked to contact Portlaoise Garda Station on 057 8674100 or the Garda confidential line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
