Serious Assault in Clondalkin, Dublin 22 on the 11/9/11

The Gardaí at Clondalkin Garda Station are investigating a serious assault on a woman that occurred in the Monastery Estate in the early hours of Sunday, the 11th September 2011.

On Saturday, the 10th September 2011 the woman and her friends went to a local pub in Clondalkin village. The pub closed at 2.30am and the woman and her friends went to a nearby Chinese take away. They sat on a wall and had their food. The woman and her friends walked home towards the Monastery Estate. The woman said goodnight to her friend and continued to walk home alone. A man wearing a blue jacket with white writing on the back walked up behind her and they said hello to each other. He had a foreign accent. She crossed the road and walked into her garden. As the woman got close to her door a man jumped at her and forced her to the ground. The man punched the woman in the face as she struggled to defend herself. She scratched him on the side of his face. During the course of the assault the woman also managed to bit her attacker on the hand.


• The Gardaí are looking to interview the male who passed the victim and said hello to her.

• The victim may have left marks on the attackers face and possibly a bite mark on his hand.

• Anyone who the Gardaí has not yet spoken to who was in the Monastery Estate / Clondalkin area on the night of the attack and may have information.
