Three men are due to appear before court in Limerick today in connection with a vicious 'crucifixion' style attack in which a man had his feet nailed to floor, writes Kathryn Hayes.
The victim, aged 53, was lured to a house on the south side of Limerick city on September 14 last year after receiving a phone call.
It is understood there was a gang waiting for him at the address where he was tied to a chair and his feet were nailed to the floor with a nail gun.
Three men, aged 32, 33 and 52 respectively, were arrested in connection with the violent attack under Section Four of the Criminal Justice Act.
All three were charged last night.
They were being held at Roxboro and Mayorstone Garda Stations and are due to appear before Limerick District Court at 10.30am today.
