Gardai have arrested a man after an attempted abduction incident in Dublin on Monday.

A man tried to bundle the woman, aged in her 60s, into the boot of his car in the Blackhorse Avenue area at about 7.30am on Monday.

The suspect who approached and attacked the woman was wearing a white t-shirt and dark trousers.

She managed to flee the scene and the car drove away on Blackhorse Avenue towards the city centre.

The car, described as a silver family saloon, may have turned left and gone on to the Navan Road.

A spokeswoman said: “Gardai arrested a 30-year-old male in relation to the assault and attempted abduction of a female in the Martin’s Grove/Blackhorse Avenue area of Dublin 7 on Monday 6th January 2020.

“He is currently being detained at Blanchardstown Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act (1984) on suspicion of offence of false imprisonment contrary to Section 15 of Non-Fatal Offences Against the Person Act (1997).”

Gardai said that they have also seized a vehicle of interest and that it is subject to a forensic examination.

Elderly woman found homeless on O'Connell Street after being discharged from Dublin hospital .
Christy Burke has slammed the hospital for discharging the woman back onto the street, and said the council quickly worked to ensure she had a bed for the night in a safe location . He told Dublin Live: "This woman should have never been discharged from the hospital. "I was out doing the homeless soup run last night, and after I headed home I got a call from Irene Coady Murphy one of the founders of Reaching Out for Homeless. "I immediately called Fran Devereux from Dublin City Council and in fairness to him he had finished work after a long day and still got her a room in a safe hotel within minutes.
