A young man was stabbed a number of times on Wednesday night near Clanbrassil Street in Dublin 8.

Emergency services were called to an apartment complex on Clanbrassil Street Lower at about 10.40pm where they found a 30-year-old man who had sustained a number of stab wounds.

The man was treated in the complex by emergency service personnel before being taken to St James’ Hospital where he is understood to be in a stable condition.

Gardaí initially struggled to ascertain where the assault had taken place.

A crime scene was later discovered and preserved at St Vincent Street, near Leonard Corner in Dublin 8.

The scene is to be examined by a Garda Technical Team.
