Savage attack on woman garda
The officer was bitten in the face and attacked with a bottle in the horrific incident which happened in broad daylight on Aston Quay.
However, despite the large crowds of passersby, no one came to the aid of the young woman and some even began recording the ongoing attack on their phones.
Three youths, including one 17yearold girl, have been arrested after the incident. The woman was left her with facial injuries and bruises to the body in the incident which saw her beaten all over and her eyes gouged.
A 17yearold girl was arrested and was questioned by gardai. She was later released without charge. Two further youths, aged 18 and 20, were arrested and charged with public order offences.
Gardai who rushed to their colleagues aid had to stop one bystander filming the injured garda on his mobile phone. The garda was on patrol alone at the time of the frenzied assault on Thursday evening.
The garda, who is in her 20s, is based at Pearse Street Station.
She had spoken to a gang of youths about drinking in public when the attack happened. And as the attack was taking place, one of the gang of youths she had confronted told bystanders: It serves her right, shes a pig.
The officer is now recovering at home after being taken to hospital for treatment. Michael OBoyce of the Garda Representative Association hit out at the lack of assistance from the public.
Not only did members of the public not come to her assistance, but they stood by and captured it on their mobile phones, he added.
Anthony Comiskey, a witness who came on the scene at Aston Quay just after the attack at around 8pm, said he was shocked by what he saw. Mr Comiskey, a credit controller, told the Herald: She was sitting on the footpath being tended to by some colleagues.
She looked a bit stunned. Someone who saw what happened said she had been attacked with a bottle or a glass. She was on her own and nobody stepped in to help her. A guy in a grey tracksuit at the scene actually said to a few people: It serves her right, shes a pig.
I just shook my head and said, youre wrong. He was part of a small gang at the scene. I was told there were a few girls and some fellas drinking and the garda went up to them and told them it wasnt allowed.
The girl involved was being put into a garda van and an ambulance arrived. Gardai investigating the attack said it was not unusual for female officers to patrol busy areas alone at that time.
Gardai have arrested a female aged 17 as a result of a serious assault on a female garda member which occurred at Merchants Arch, a spokesman said.
He said the officer had suffered serious enough injuries, but was discharged from hospital that night and was now convalescing at home. Her injuries included a bloody nose, sprained fingers and bruising to her body.
