The victim has sustained life threatening injuries.

Gardaí at Pearse St in Dublin investigating a serious assault are appealing for information.

At approximately 10.25pm on Friday 26 April, a 44-year-old man was seriously assaulted by a lone male on Prices Lane in Dublin 2.

The injured man sustained life threatening injuries and is currently in St. James Hospital.

The suspect in this investigation made his way onto Aston Quay near its junction with Bedford Row, where he removed items of his clothing and appears to have laid down on the street.

His behaviour attracted public attention and investigating Gardaí understand that this man may have been recorded on mobile phones.

We are appealing to anyone who has mobile phone footage and to drivers who may have dash cam footage to contact the incident room at Pearse St Garda Station on 01-666 9012, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
