A teenager was rushed to hospital after he was stabbed several times by a gang in Cork last night.

The incident took place in an apartment on John Redmond Street in Cork City shortly before 9pm.

It is understood that the boy was not a resident of the apartment but had been looking after the tenant’s dogs when a gang stormed in and attacked him.

Gardaí and emergency service arrived at the scene and the young man was taken to Cork University Hospital for treatment to his wounds. His condition is not thought to be life-threatening.

A garda spokesperson said: “The scene is preserved for forensic examination and enquiries are ongoing. No arrests have been made at this time.”

The tenant’s two dogs went missing after the incident.

One of the dogs, an older female, was found by neighbours in the gardens of Shandon Church and was returned to her owner.

A puppy, a 15-week-old American pocket bully who answers to the name Nala, is still missing.

It is not known whether the pup ran away during the incident or was taken.

Anyone with information on the attack or the dog’s location is asked to contact Mayfield Garda Station 021-4558510.
