Concern after young teenage girl involved in an assault


Police are investigating an incident involving an assault on a young teenage girl in the Pipers Hill general area of the city centre on Halloween night (October 31) at approximately 9.45pm.

The young girl was walking home in the company of friends when they were approached by three well-dressed male adults who possibly photographed/videoed by camera phone before an assault took place.

A spokesperson for the Police said they were “deeply concerned by the nature of this incident and would appeal for parents to keep an eye on their children especially now that we are in the thick of the dark winter nights.”

He added: “Always ensure that your children do not walk home alone at any time and always stick to well lit areas and when possible arrangements be made to collect children in vehicles.”
