Woman mugged in Gorey
A GOREY resident is recovering this week after a terrifying late night mugging just yards from her home at the weekend.
The woman was walking on Esmonde Street at around 1.30 a.m. on Friday night when two men came up behind her and dragged her into a laneway at the Railway Bridge.
She bravely fought them off and held on to her handbag as they tried to pull it from her. The men made off with the handbag after the strap broke.
Gardaí were quickly on the scene. The woman, who requested not to be named, has asked people in the local area to look out for the handbag as it contains photographs and personal papers.
