Gardai believe the horrific stab attacks in East Wall are linked to a “fracas” that occurred between two large groups of youths at Clontarf Dart Station last weekend.

The chief suspects for last night’s attack are a gang of youths from the Coolock area who are suspected of travelling to the north inner city after “coming out worse” in last weekend’s incident.

There have been no arrests so far in the case which is being investigated by officers from Store Street and gardai are appealing for witnesses.

“Gardaí investigating a stabbing incident that occurred in the Dublin 3 area on the evening of Monday, 13th September, 2021, are appealing to the public for information,” a spokesman said.

“At approximately 8:30pm, two males aged 16 years were assaulted during an incident involving a group of youths at Church Road, East Wall.

“Both youths sustained laceration wounds and were taken to the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

“The scene was examined by local scenes of crime officers. No arrests have been made at this time.

“Gardaí are appealing for any witnesses to this incident to come forward. Gardaí are also appealing to any road users who were in the Church Road/East Wall area between 8:15pm and 8:30pm and who may have camera footage (including dash-cam) to make it available to them,” the spokesman added.
