Two Dublin Men Foil Clontarf Car-Jacking


Two Dublin men have foiled what appears to be an attempted car-jacking in Clontarf. The incident happened around 10am this morning and a man has since been arrested and investigating Gardaí are appealing for witnesses.

A number of passers-by came to the assistance of a woman driver this morning, when a man approached her and tried to force her from her car on the Alfie Byrne Road in Clontarf.

At least two people tackled the man and one forced him to the ground where they continued to detain him, while the authorities were alerted.

Gardai say they responded to reports of an attempted car-jack shortly after 10am. A man in his thirties has since been arrested and is currently detained at Clontarf Garda Station – under section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act.

No one was injured in the incident. An investigation is on-going and Gardaí are appealing for witnesses.
