Gardaí in Kilmainham investigating a fatal stabbing incident and serious assault on 1 December 2012 on St Anthony’s Rd outside Herberton Apartments in Rialto Dublin 8 arrested two males (aged 16 and 19) this morning in the Dublin 8 area.

The teens were brought to Kilmainham Garda station where they were both charged in connection with the incident. They will appear before the Juvenile Court in Smithfield at 10.30am this morning.

The stabbing occurred at around 5.30am on 1 December last year when an altercation between a number of youths resulted in two males in their 20s receiving stab injuries. Both victims were taken to St James Hospital where one man, a German native, was later pronounced dead.
