Gardaí have appealed for witnesses after a man was confronted by a gang and assaulted on the Grand Canal Banks in Clondalkin last Sunday. 

During the incident that happened just before 8pm, the man, in his 30s was threatened and assaulted by six youths and an electric scooter was stolen.

Gardaí later arrested four youths and recovered the scooter.

“All four youths were taken to Ballyfermot and Clondalkin Garda stations where they were detained under the provisions of Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984,” gardaí said.

“All four have since been released without charge pending files being prepared for the Juvenile Liaison Officer.”

Gardaí are now asking anyone who was in the area between 7.30pm and 8.30pm, and who may have witnessed the incident to come forward.

They are particularly appealing to any road users who were travelling on the road at the time with camera footage to make this available to them.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Clondalkin Garda station on 01 666 7600, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.
