Man seriously hurt in Camden Street assault

A man in his 20s is seriously ill in hospital after an early-morning assault in Dublin that left him with head injuries.

In the incident, which took place at about 5.05am close to the junction of Camden St and Harrington St, the man was assaulted by another man, also in his 20s, who then ran from the scene.

The injured man was attended to by Dublin Fire Brigade personnel and brought to St James' hospital where his condition is described as serious.

The suspect, described as being in his 20s with black hair and wearing a dark top and blue jeans, ran off in the direction of Wexford St.

It is believed a number of people gathered around to help the injured man as he lay on the footpath before the ambulance arrived.

Gardaí in Kevin St are reviewing CCTV footage from the scene and the area has been sealed off for a technical examination.

Gardaí have appealed for any witnesses to contact them at Kevin St on 01 6669400, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any garda station.
