Gardaí appealing for witnesses to attempted abduction in Dublin

The incident took place in the early hours of Monday morning.

Gardaí are investigating the assault and attempted abduction of a woman in the Martin's Grove/Blackhorse Avenue area of Dublin.


The incident occurred at approximately 7.30am this morning (Monday 6 January).

The car is described as a silver family saloon and the suspect is reported to have been wearing a white t-shirt and dark trousers.


Gardaí wish to speak to any person who was in the vicinity of Blackhorse Avenue on Monday between 6am and 8am, or anyone who may have information about this incident.

They are also appealing to road users who may have camera footage and were driving in the Blackhorse Avenue area around that time to come forward.
