Gardai appealing for witnesses to attack on woman by man with chipped tooth

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses to an assault which occurred in Blanchardstown, Dublin on Sunday 17th of May 2015.

The woman, who is in her late 30s and uses a crutch, was walking her dogs at 2:30am on Blakestown Way, just before the N3 flyover.

The woman was assaulted by a man described as being in his late 20s, 6 feet tall,  with a Dublin accent and a chipped left front tooth.  He was wearing jeans and a dark coloured hoody.

A passing taxi man pulled up and intervened in the incident.

The suspected offender ran away and the taxi driver left the scene without giving his name to the woman.

The intervention of the taxi driver undoubtedly prevented this becoming a more serious assault.

Gardaí are appealing for the taxi driver or anyone else with information to contact them at Blanchardstown Garda Station on 01 666 7000.
