Updated 8.57 pm

GARDAÍ AT DUBLIN’S Mountjoy Station are on the hunt for three men believed to have carried out a sexual attack on a young woman in Phibsborough on Sunday night.

The 20-year-old woman was walking in the area when the alleged attack took place at a laneway across from St Peters Church at Cabra Park.

A garda spokesperson said it happened at around 7.45pm on Sunday night and that three men were involved.

The woman was taken to the nearby Rotunda Hospital for tests.

The man culprit involved is believed to be about 5’9” in height with scarring on his face. His is described as being of skinny build, with shaved blonde hair and a light facial stubble.

When the attack took place he is said to have been wearing grey cotton trousers with a white stripe down the side, a grey hoodie and black runners.

The second man is believed to be taller, at about 6′, with a thin face, dark eyes and a scar on his hand. During the assault he is described as wearing a dark grey hoodie.

No description is available for the third man but gardaí say they are anxious to speak to a man who may have met the three in the laneway following the alleged incident.

The investigation is ongoing, but so far no arrests have been made.

Gardaí are appealing for information. Mountjoy Station can be reached on 01 666 8600.
