Landlord filmed assaulting and threatening to kill a tenant in Tipperary
Gardaí are appealing for the victims to come forward.
Gardaí are appealing for information following the sharing of a video which shows a landlord apparently assaulting and threatening to kill a tenant in his apartment.
The disturbing video, which has been circulated on WhatsApp and social media platforms, shows a man attack another man in a stairwell with a metal bar during an alleged eviction.
"You're getting the f**k out, either that way [pointing down stairs], or through the window," the landlord says.
He then proceeds to scream obscenities at the man in the stairwell, attempting to strangle him by pushing the metal bar against his throat against a wall.
The landlord then beats the man's head against the wall, and then points at another man in an apartment, saying "you're next".
The man is then dragged into the apartment, where a tenant is demanded to find money for an allegedly broken door.
"We don't need to fight, we can talk," the man from the apartment is heard saying.
"Go get money, get out," the landlord replies.
He then pushes the tenant back on the couch when he attempts to stand.
As the man from the stairwell puts on his shoes, the landlord calls him a "cowardly b*****d", asking him "what are you afraid of?".
The man on the couch goes to ask "why", but is interrupted by the landlord, who jumps on him.
"Shut the f**k up, I'll kill you, you c**t," the landlord says.
"When I give you money, you get to leave.
"If I don't get money, you don't get to leave."
He then forcibly removes the man's shoes from his feet, apparently taking them with him.
In a statement to JOE, An Garda Síochána have said the following;
