Gardaí arrested a man on Monday night in connection with an aggravated break-in to a house in Fethard over the weekend during which a man was assaulted with a bar.
The man, aged in his early 20s, was arrested in Fethard and was detained at Clonmel Garda Station for questioning.
The aggravated burglary took place at a house at Slievenamon Close, Fethard at 2am on Saturday, June 19.
