GARDAÍ ARE APPEALING for the public’s help following an assault on a man in his 20s in Cork overnight. 

Shortly before 3am, a man in his 20s was walking on Pouladuff Road in Cork when he was assaulted by a group of men. 

They stole his wallet and mobile phone and then fled the scene.

Gardaí are appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident or may have been in the area between 2.30am and 3.15am this morning to contact them.
