Couple (30s) hospitalised after late-night attack by gang of youths

Passers-by intervened and the attackers ran off. Gardaí are appealing for information.

GARDAÍ IN LIMERICK are appealing for information after a couple in their 30s were attacked outside a nightclub.

It happened last weekend. The man and woman had to be hospitalised for treatment to their injuries in the wake of the attack and robbery, which happened on Michael Street between 2.30am and 2.50am on Sunday 20 December.

“They had just left a local nightclub when they were attacked in the street by a number of youths,” Sergeant Justin McCarthy of Henry Street Station told Limerick’s Live 95fm.

A phone was stolen from one of the victims during the robbery and both victims required attention at the regional hospital for minor injuries.

Passers-by intervened and the attackers fled the scene before any serious injury was caused, McCarthy said.

Any witnesses are being asked to contact the station on 061 212 400.
