Gardai investigating a serious assault in Cork have renewed their appeal for witnesses or anyone who recorded footage of the incident to get in touch.

Footage of the incident was captured on a mobile phone and went viral online earlier this month.

The shocking footage shows a young man being set upon by a group of men, who kick him repeatedly and who also strike him viciously with what appears to be a crutch.

In the wake of the incident gardai near the scene arrested three male teenagers for unrelated alleged public order offences and detectives are reported to be still investigating if there is a possible link between the assault caught on camera and public order offences nearby.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the gardai at Angelsea Street on (021) 452 2000.
