GARDAÍ ARE LOOKING for three male suspects after a student attending Limerick Institute of Technology (LIT) was thrown from a car and injured after being held against his will and robbed near the college.

The incident happened shortly after 6pm on Monday.

“Two students were walking towards the LIT roundabout when a male in a passenger seat of a vehicle which was parked up at the roundabout called one of these students over,” Garda Louise Jordan from Henry Street Garda Station said.

“When the injured party went over to check what this person wanted, he was pulled in through the car window,” Jordan said.

“He was held against his will by the occupants of this vehicle.

“The injured party’s wallet was taken from him. He then sustained minor bruising and grazing after he was thrown from this vehicle,” she added.

Appealing for information and witnesses, Jordan said investigating officers were “particularly interested in the offending vehicle which was parked at the LIT roundabout at approximately 6pm on 27 March”.

Appeal for witnesses 

The victim told gardaí the men’s’ car is a dark blue Peugeot hatchback. The three suspects were described by the victim as being aged in their 20s.

Jordan said the driver of the car is described as having dark hair, being in his early 20s and of slim build. The passenger is described as being in his 20s and of slim build, while the back seat passenger is described as being of similar age, with blond hair.
