Three hospitalised following Dublin assault

Two men and a boy are being treated in hospital following an assault in south Dublin.

One of the men is in a serious condition following the attack in Ballinteer on Thursday night.

The three victims, aged 20, 18 and in his early teens, were cycling on Broadford Road at around 8.20pm on Thursday, when they were attacked by four other men in a blue Peugeot car.

It is reported that the victims were kicked, punched, and possibly hit over head by a bottle.

The four suspects left the scene in the blue Peugeot in the direction of Dundrum.

Two of the victims were taken to St James' Hospital, where one is described as being in a serious condition, while the boy was taken to Our Lady's Children's Hospital in Crumlin, for what are believed to be minor injuries.

It is thought the three victims are related.

Any witnesses to the incident are being asked to contact Gardaí at Dundrum.
