Garda appeal for information after man assaulted in Letterkenny

Gardaí are seeking witnesses to an assault which happened on the High Road, Letterkenny shortly before 11.20pm on Sunday, June 5. 

Gardaí were out on mobile patrol when they observed an injured man lying on a footpath. People had gathered around the man to try and assist him. An ambulance was contacted and the man was taken to Letterkenny University Hospital. He remains in hospital. 

It is understood that the assault occurred on the road and not on the footpath in an area close to the New Line Road. 

Garda Gráinne Doherty said that as part of their ongoing investigation, gardaí are interested in sightings of a man who was in the area at the time. The man is described as being of dark complexion, 5 foot 6” tall, of thin build and in his late teens. The man is also described as having curly dark hair on top of his head but with short back and sides. He was wearing a dark t-shirt. Gardaí say they understand the man to have been in the company of a female who was wearing a white jacket, a black top and trousers and had black long hair. 

This man is believed to have left the scene on foot in the direction of the hospital roundabout. Gardaí are asking any witnesses to the incident to please contact them at Letterkenny Garda Station. Anyone who was driving in the area and may have dashcam is also asked to please contact gardaí. Those who may have witnessed the young man on foot in the area of the hospital roundabout is also asked to please contact Letterkenny Garda Station on 074 91 67100.
