The incident took place in Mill Lane, Dublin 15, on the evening of Friday 18 March between the hours of 6pm and 6.30pm. The victim is said to be aged in her 30s.

The day followed St Patrick's Day and was also a public holiday, so Gardaí believe there may have been pedestrians in the area at the time who witnessed the assault.

A Garda spokesperson said: "Mill Lane is a roadway which leads from Blanchardstown Village to James Connolly Memorial Hospital. Gardai believe that there were a number of pedestrians in the area between 6pm and 6.30pm on the 18th March 2022 who may have witnessed this incident.

"Gardai would invite any person who was in this area at the time and has any information to make contact with the investigation team at Cabra Garda Station on 01 666 7400, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station."
