Gardaí investigating assault on Dublin bin men that went viral
A video of the incident was shared widely on social media.
Gardaí are yet to make any arrests in connection with an apparent assault on two bin men in Dublin at 10.10am on Friday morning (17 July). The incident occurred on Holywell Road, Donaghmede.
A video of the incident was shared widely on social media, and appeared to show a man drive onto the curb in his car, almost hitting one of the bin men.
The man proceeds to get out of his car and confront the man driving the bin lorry. After a tussle, the man returns to his car, retrieves something from the boot, and appears to strike the other bin man in the head with it. Gardaí have confirmed that the bin man who was struck with the object was brought to Beaumont Hospital, and his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
The man's employer has also confirmed that the employee is "okay."
Gardaí say that no arrests have been made and that the investigation is ongoing.
