A man who was arrested after a stabbing incident in Dundalk yesterday has been charged. 

The man, who is in his 30s, was arrested by gardaí investigating the assault that occurred on Castletown Road.

He was detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984 and will appear before Dundalk District Court later this morning.

Two people were taken to hospital after the incident that happened at approximately 9am and allegedly involved a dangerous weapon.

A video taken at the scene shows the woman bleeding with stab wounds in her back as she waits for gardaí to arrive.

She then tells an officer: “I need an ambulance.”

The man on the other side of the road is then forced to the ground by gardaí.

A separate video shows the man on the ground surrounded by six officers while the woman has her wounds tended to by a garda and locals.

An ambulance arrived at the scene shortly afterwards.

The man and woman have both been taken to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Drogheda with what are believed to be serious but not life-threatening injuries.

A garda spokesperson said: “Gardaí are investigating an incident of assault that occurred on Castletown Road, Dundalk, Co. Louth this morning, Wednesday 28th July 2021 at approximately 9am.
