Woman on crutch attacked by Dublin man with chipped front tooth

A passing taxi driver intervened and gardaí said he prevented the incident from becoming a more serious assault.

GARDAÍ IN BLANCHARDSTOWN are appealing for witnesses after an assault on a woman in the early hours of yesterday morning.

The woman, who is in her late 30s and who was using a crutch, was walking her dog on Blakestown Way at around 2.30am when a man attacked her.

He is described as being in his late 20s, 6′ tall, with a Dublin accent and a chipped left front tooth. He was wearing jeans and a dark coloured hoody.

A passing taxi driver pulled up and intervened when he saw what was happening. The man ran away and the taxi driver also left the scene without giving his name to the woman.

Today, gardaí said the intervention of the driver “undoubtedly prevented this becoming a more serious assault”.

They are appealing to him or anyone else with information to contact them at Blanchardstown Garda Station on 01 666 700.
