Gardai are looking for witnesses to a vicious late-night assault which occurred in Dublin city centre in the early hours of this morning.

A man was assaulted and robbed near the Merrion Street Lower/Fenian Street junction at around 2.30am when three men attacked him.

It is believed the men were all in their late teens.

They approached the man from behind and knocked him to the ground before stealing his belongings.

The injured man witnessed them getting into a taxi on Merrion Street Lower, which was a silver Ford Mondeo, before they drove off in the direction of Baggot Street.

Gardai are looking to speak to the taxi driver or any witnesses.

People with information are asked to contact the Garda Confidential Lin on 1800 666111.
