The Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission (Gsoc) has issued an appeal for witnesses after a teenager who was arrested in Dublin city on Tuesday suffered head injuries. 

The 17-year-old boy, who was arrested in the East Sussex Street area at around 9pm, was brought to Pearse Street Garda Station for questioning.

It was later reported that soon after he was brought to Pearse Street Garda Station, he required hospital treatment.

An investigation into the incident that includes gathering CCTV from Pearse Street Garda Station has been launched.

The matter was referred to Gsoc by a Garda Superintendent in accordance with section 102 (1) of the Garda Síochána Act, 2005, which references any matter where the conduct of a member of An Garda Síochána may have resulted in the death of, or serious harm to, a person.

“Gsoc would like to hear from any potential witnesses that may have captured the incident on CCTV, dashcams or mobile footage,” Gsoc said in a statement.

Anyone with information which may be of assistance to the investigation is asked to contact Gsoc at 1890 600 800 or info@gsoc.ie.
