Gardai appeal for witnesses after man, 50s, attacked by two males in Limerick city centre

GARDAI are appealing for witnesses to an assault which took place in the city centre on Saturday night to come forward.

Shortly before 11pm, a man who is in his 50s, was walking along Cruises St. alone. He was approached by two males who assaulted him.

“His injuries needed medical attention and he was brought to University Hospital Limerick,” said divisional crime prevention officer Sergeant Ber Leetch.

A number of witnesses have already come forward but gardai believe there are others may have seen what happened.

“Cruises Street is busy at 11 o’clock on a Saturday night so gardai at Henry Street would like to speak to any other persons who may have seen this assault take place,” said Sgt Leetch.

Anyone who was in the area at the time and who may have seen what happened is asked to contact 061 212400.
