Woman was seriously assaulted in Temple Bar - but left scene before gardaí arrived
Passers-by came to the aid of the woman – and gardaí have issued an appeal for information.

GARDAÍ ARE APPEALING for witnesses to a serious assault that happened in the Temple Bar area of Dublin last weekend.

It happened at around 3.40am on Saturday morning at Bedford Lane, close to Aston Quay.

Gardaí received reports that a woman was assaulted by a man – but it’s believed she left the area before officers arrived.

According to a statement:

“It is believed that the woman was knocked to the ground during the incident before members of the public came to her assistance.

“There were a number of witnesses to this incident and a number of people have been interviewed in connection with this investigation.”

Investigating gardaí are asking the woman or anyone who may have information to contact them at Pearse Street Garda Station on 01 6669000, to call the Garda Confidential Line at 1800 666111 or to contact any Garda station.

The area would have been relatively busy at the time, as people made their way home from Friday Christmas parties.
