Murder probe as hunt under way for killers of Polish man

Man dies and his partner is seriously injured by armed gang who broke into County Cork home

A murder enquiry has been opened relating to the incident.

A 35-year-old Polish man living in Ireland was stabbed to death after a gang of armed attackers burst into his house on the outskirts of Ballincollig, County Cork, in the early hours of Sunday morning. The two children reportedly witnessed the incident, but were unharmed, while a second woman managed to leave the home using a window.

The men, who were carrying weapons, entered the house and seriously assaulted the man and his partner, whose injuries are not life-threatening.

Wilk, who is also known locally as Nick, was taken to the Cork University Hospital but was pronounced dead at 5:30 AM.

Gardaí are appealing to anyone with information to contact them - in particular, drivers who may have dash cam footage and who travelled in the Maglin, Ballincollig, Ballinora and Waterfall areas between 2am and 5am yesterday morning.

A auto was found burnt out several kilometres away in Waterfall.

Officers investigating the incident say they are now searching for the men behind the attack. He died later in hospital.

The scene where the vehicle was found and the house where the attack took place have been sealed off for forensic examination.

A fundraising page has been opened to help the family following the attack and murder of Wilk.

The gang left the scene before gardai arrived in what gardai believe was a BMW 3 series.
