GARDAÍ ARE APPEALING for information after a man in his 60s died following a stabbing incident in Dublin last night.

Gardaí and emergency services were called to an incident in a house on Rutland Grove, Crumlin shortly after 8pm.

The man was taken from the scene by ambulance to St James’ Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

It’s understood he sustained a stab wound.

A man in his 30s has since been arrested by gardaí and is currently detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984 at Crumlin Garda Station. Gardaí are continuing to question him.

A postmortem examination will be carried out on the deceased man by the State Pathologist later this morning at the City Morgue.

An incident room has been established at Sundrive Road Garda Station.

“We are appealing to anyone who was in the Rutland Grove/Clogher Road area of Dublin 12 between 8pm and 8.15pm on Sunday 19 August 2018 to come forward,” Superintendent Michael Cryan said, speaking at Sundrive Road Station.

Gardaí are also trying to trace the movements of a red Toyota Yaris, described as a four-door hatchback with L plates and a partial registration of 04-WW, that was driven from the scene at Rutland Grove at about 8pm. It was then recovered at around 8.20pm at Connolly Hospital, Blanchardstown.

“We would also appeal to anyone with dashcam footage from the Rutland Grove or Connolly Hospital areas in and around the specified times to make it available to investigators.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Sundrive Road Garda Station on 01 666600 or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111.
