GARDAÍ ARE APPEALING to the public for information following a serious assault on a woman in the Clondalkin area of Dublin on Monday.

The woman, who is in her 20s, was approached by a lone man at about 11.45am while out walking in Ballymount Park, gardaí said.  Following a struggle, the man escaped on foot in the direction of the M50. The woman was taken by ambulance to Tallaght Hospital where she was treated for her injuries and has since been discharged.

The man is described as approximately 30 years of age, of average height and build, with short dark hair and was wearing a black leather jacket.

Gardaí are especially keen to talk to to motorists travelling on the M50 between Junction 10 Ballymount and Junction 9 Red Cow between 10.30am and 12.30pm on 30th May 2011 and who may have noticed a male fitting the above description to contact them.

Gardaí have stressed that, at this point, they have no reports of similar incidents occurring in Tallaght or Clondalkin. They have dismissed rumours “currently circulating on social media” that other women may have been assaulted in the area, which they say is causing “unnecessary fear in the local community”.

Anybody with information on this incident has been asked to contact Clondalkin Garda Station 01-6667600, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111, or any Garda Station.
