Two men arrested after kicking in window on Dublin bus
The two men smashed the window on a late-night bus from Dublin City.

TWO MEN WERE arrested last night after smashing a window on a late-night bus on Dublin’s Dorset Street.

The incident occurred on the 122 bus heading to Ashington at around 11.45pm last night.

PastedImage-45321 A plain-clothes Garda escorts one of the men off the bus.

Witnesses say that two men, aged 19 and 21, boarded the bus on Dorset Street without paying a fare, went upstairs and opened an emergency exit.

This forced the driver to stop the bus. The two men then proceeded to begin kicking windows upstairs, smashing one.

Gardaí arrived and the two men were arrested. They were taken to Store Street Garda Station and charged with criminal damage.

They will appear before Dublin District Court at a later date.

Dublin Bus could not comment on the matter because of the arrests, but said that the level of anti-social behaviour on buses is relatively small and decreasing in terms of journeys taken.

The company says it has a “strong working relationship” with gardaí and has a number of initiatives to help drivers and passengers stay safe.
