A MAN IN his 20s is scheduled to appear before the Criminal Justice Court at 10.30am tomorrow in connection with an alleged sexual assault of an 18-year-old woman last month.

The man was arrested by gardaí from Blanchardstown.

Gardaí said that the alleged incident took place in the Littlepace area of Dublin 15 in the early hours of 18 December.

It is understood the incident occurred at approximately 4am shortly after the woman had alighted from a Nitelink bus on Littlepace Road.

While walking home she was approached, threatened and assaulted by a lone male. The woman managed to fend off her attacker and raise the alarm by flagging down a passing taxi before alerting gardaí. Her phone was also taken during the incident.

The investigation is ongoing.
