A MAN WHO was arrested over the fatal assault of another man in Harold’s Cross over the weekend has been released without charge.

The man is in his 40s. Gardaí said that a file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The victim, who was in his late 5os, died on Sunday morning of his injuries at St James’ Hospital.

Gardaí and ambulance services were called to an incident outside Park View apartments, directly across from Harold’s Cross park, just after 4am on Saturday.

There, they discovered a 57-year-old man who was injured after an assault.

It is being reported today that the man was the victim of a ‘one-punch’ attack, and hit his head off a kerb.
