This is the thug quizzed by Gardaí over the sickening mugging of an autistic man which left his victim with two black eyes and a broken nose.

Convicted thief Jay O’Sullivan, of Ballybrack, Dublin, is believed to have broken down in tears while being interviewed by gardaí, pleading he didn’t know his victim was autistic.

The 29-year-old was arrested on Wednesday alongside a woman in her late teens and taken to Bray Garda Station.

There, both were confronted with shocking CCTV images of the depraved attack in a laneway at the Dart station at 6pm on April 4.

The images showed O’Sullivan repeatedly striking his victim in the face with blows as a female associate attempted to rob him of his phone.

He also launched a full-force kick to the victim’s face while he was on his knees pleading not to be hit any more.
