GARDAÍ IN DUBLIN are investigating a serious assault that took place in the city centre on Friday night and left a man with life-threatening injuries. 

At about 10.25pm on Friday night, a 44-year-old man was seriously assaulted by a lone male on Prices Lane, Dublin 2.

The injured man sustained life-threatening injuries and is currently in St James’ Hospital. 

The suspect made his way from Prices Lane and onto Aston Quay, near the junction with Bedford Row. 

Once there, gardaí said that he removed items of his clothing and appears to have lain down in the street. 

Gardaí said that his behaviour attracted public attention and they understand the man may have been recorded on mobile phones.
