Dead Stab Victim Unknown To Assailant Who May Have Attacked Over Car Space


It’s believed detectives are investigating if a man, stabbed to death in Dublin this morning, was attacked over a parking space.

A woman in her 30s is being questioned, after the man in his late 20s was found with stab injuries outside a house in Browns Barn Wood in Kingswood at around 7am.

Gardaí say there’s currently no known motive, but it’s understood there was no relationship between the victim and the suspect, who may not have even known each other.

His car wouldn’t start when he came out to go to work at 7am. He had opened the bonnet and was trying to start the car when he was attacked and stabbed a number of times.

He collapsed and died on the street between two cars. His body was removed from the scene and a post-mortem examination will be carried out later.

Gardaí suspect he was attacked by a woman, a mother of three children and do not believe there was any personal relationship between the woman and the victim.
