The incident occurred on the layby before junction 12 of the M4. 

A number of men and two cars were seen parked in the layby at 7.10pm on Saturday evening. A garda spokesperson said that gardaí are “anxious” to identify the vehicles and speak to the men. 

One car is described as being a dark blue or grey Skoda, while the second car is a small black Opel Corsa or Citroen. 

Gardaí want to speak to anyone who was driving close to junction 12 on the M4 yesterday evening between 6.45pm and 7.15pm. They also want to speak to anyone who might have dash came footage from this time or who might have observed the vehicles.
