An unprovoked and horrific attack took place at Bray Dart station earlier this month – and the gardai are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident.
The three suspects – who set upon a young man as he left the station, violently beating him before stealing his phone – are a man in his late 20s and two women, one in her 30s, the other 18.
The incident, which occurred on Monday, April 4th, was caught on CCTV, and those images are now being shared on social media. In the hope of recognising those responsible for this senseless and brutal act.
Speaking out recently, the father of the victim has said that his son has been left severely shaken by the unprovoked attack. The fact that his son is autistic meant he’s naturally, explains his father, timid and nervous. On the day in question, he had stopped to help a man in a wheelchair disembark the train, and was therefore one of the last to leave the platform.
Luckily, the male suspect – originally from south Dublin but now living in Bray – is known to gardai, having been involved in drugs and violent street crime. The older of the two girls is from the Shankill area whilst the younger woman is believed to be from Bray.
And, given the times that we live in, Facebook users have started posting an image of the Bray man they believe to be the attacker in question. whilst another has set up a gofundme page for the young man who was attacked.
Two arrests have been made, the man on Wednesday evening, the woman on Thursday morning, both being held at Bray Garda station under Section 4 CJA. Files are now being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions. Amen.
There is a change.org petition to have the man and woman involved directly here prosecuted. Click here.
