A YOUNG MALE has been released after he was arrested by gardaí investigating an incident in which a woman fell between a Dart and the platform at a Dublin Dart station in April.

Videos of the incident at Howth Junction Dart Station appeared online earlier this month. Three teenage boys were previously arrested over the incident but have since been released without charge. 

A juvenile male was arrested on Tuesday by investigating gardaí.

He was detained at Raheny Garda Station and has been released pending a file to the Director of Public Prosecutions. 

Gardaí said investigations are ongoing. 

It was reported earlier this week that Irish Rail is investigating the “unauthorised distribution” of CCTV footage of the incident after it appeared online earlier this month.
