Murder investigation launched after disabled man stabbed to death in Dublin

Anthony Rogers was stabbed in his home yesterday

A murder investigation has been launched after a disabled man aged in his 60s was stabbed to death.

Anthony Rogers was stabbed in his home in Robinson's Court off Cork Street in Dublin yesterday.

The 61-year-old was attacked in his home at around 2.30pm yesterday afternoon.

Mr Rogers was disabled and used a wheelchair, and was left bleeding in his home after the attack.

He was rushed to St James's Hospital but died a short time later.

At the moment gardaí say they are keeping an open mind about the motive of the attack.

Robinson's Court is a quiet area where mostly older people live.

But it is the second fatal stabbing at the complex, after an 80-year-old man was stabbed to death there in 2006.

Gardaí are looking to speak to a man who was seen in the area at the time.

He was wearing a light-coloured grey hoodie, a beige baseball cap, navy tracksuit bottoms and white runners.

He may have had the hood of his hoodie up at times over the baseball cap.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Kevin Street garda station.
