TWO MEN HAVE appeared in court this morning charged with assaulting a Romanian man whose arm was almost totally severed in an attack on Dublin’s North Circular Road yesterday.

The two men have been named as Steven Seery and Patrick Healy, originally from Coolock. They were arrested in the early hours of Friday morning following the attack, RTÉ reports.

The men were released and then re-arrested last night under section 3 of the criminal justice act and charged with assault causing harm. Having appeared at Dublin District Court this morning, the two men were bailed to appear again on 17 July.

The victim, who was attacked following an altercation outside a Spar on Dublin’s North Circular Road, remains in the Mater Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery to reattach his arm.

His injuries have been described as serious and he remains in intensive care.
