VIDEO: Violent rampage outside Dublin flats

A man has been arrested after several people were assaulted during an unprovoked attack outside a West Dublin flat complex this morning.

The incident was caught on camera and footage shows the topless male approaching another man at Waterville Terrace in Balnchardstown and punching him.

The victim, who is carrying what appears to be a vacuum cleaner, falls against a car. He gets up and is seen coming face to face with the assailant before a group of people try to intervene.

However, the attacker then turns his attention to the four people and hits one man before chasing them through a car park.

 

A further violent tussle then takes place with three men attempting to control the assailant.

Eventually the group flee leaving the man alone in the car park where he puts his hands on his knees and appears to be gasping for breath.

Gardaí say they were called to a public order incident at the Waterville apartments in Blanchardstown at 11.30am.

A spokesman said: "A man, aged in his 20s, was arrested and detained at Blanchardstown garda station under section four of the criminal justice act."

Independent.ie reports that the suspect is of Eastern European descent.
