Gardai in Letterkenny are investigating a disturbing incident that happened in the town on Wednesday morning when a teenager girl was approached by a man who accosted her before she fought him off.

The Donegal News are reporting that a 15-year-old girl was on her way to school at 8.30am on Wednesday morning when a man approached her from behind.

The man, who was wearing gloves, put his hand over the girl's mouth but she managed to escape his clutches by kicking out at him.

The paper also quotes a local Gardai, who confirmed they are investigating the incident, which happened in Bernard McGlinchey Park.

“She was listening to music as she walked through the park when she was approached from behind by a male who put his hand over her mouth. Anyone who was in the Town Park between 8.15am and 8.45am on Wednesday morning and noticed anything suspicious is asked to contact Letterkenny Garda Station,” he said.
