A man and a woman have been remanded in custody after they were charged with sexual assault of a woman at a Luas stop in Dublin.
The pair, who cannot be named to protect the complainant's identity, appeared at Dublin District Court after they were detained at Crumlin station and charged earlier this week.
The man, in his 30s, of no fixed address and his co-defendant, in her 40s and from Dublin, are each accused of sexually assaulting the woman at the Drimnagh stop in the early hours of January 26.
Judge Paul Murphy noted the evidence of arrest and caution from Garda Thomas Wafer that there was "no reply" to the charges.
They did not apply for bail and were remanded in custody to appear again next week.
Legal aid was granted.
Directions from the DPP are to be sought.
The complainant was brought to a Sexual Assault Treatment Unit in the capital for specialist treatment for her injuries.
