A man has taken to Facebook to describe how he was viciously assaulted by a gang of youths as he cycled home from the Taste Of Dublin Festival in the early hours of Monday morning.
Leon was accosted at the top of Jamestown Road in Finglas after his attackers asked him for a smoke, which he didn't have.
The barman was hit with a stone before being kicked and punched from all angles. Luckily, he managed to call an ambulance for himself once the assault was finished. He believes he was very fortunate to escape with only injuries.
Leon has asked anyone with information to contact Finglas Garda Station at 016667500.
