A 34-year-old man is expected to appear before a special sitting of Limerick District Court later this morning charged in connection with a tiger kidnapping on the outskirts of the city last week.

The suspect was arrested last Friday evening in the Lord Edward Street area of the city and he has been detained at Henry Street garda station since.

Last night, the Director of Public Prosecutions directed that he be charged with the false imprisonment of 19-year-old Stephen Cusack, who was allegedly abducted from a house in Castletroy on August 19, last.

A fifteen-year-old boy was granted bail last week, when he appeared in court charged in connection with the same incident.
