Gardaí investigate assault and attempted abduction of woman

Gardaí in Cabra are investigating the assault and attempted abduction of a woman in the Martin’s Grove/Blackhorse Avenue area of Dublin 7 which occurred yesterday morning (Monday, January 6) at 7.30am.

The woman, aged in her 60s, was approached by a male who attempted to force her into the boot of a car.

She managed to flee the scene and the car drove away via Blackhorse Avenue towards Dublin city centre. The car, described as a silver family saloon, may have turned left and driven onto the Navan Road.

It is believed the suspect was wearing a white t-shirt and dark trousers.

Gardaí wish to speak to any person who was in the vicinity of Blackhorse Avenue yesterday between 6am and 8am and may have information about the incident.

They are also appealing to any road users driving in the Blackhorse Avenue area who may have camera footage.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Blanchardstown Garda Station on 01-6667000, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.
