CAREER criminal Ross Hutch has been arrested on suspicion of slashing a man in the face after handing himself in.
The thug, who was on the run since Sunday, presented himself at Store Street Garda Station in north Dublin today.
It is understood that Hutch is also being quizzed in relation to an alleged assault on a female known to him.
On Sunday, a man in his 30s was sliced in the face on Commons Street, in the north inner city, shortly before 9pm.
Emergency services rushed the victim to a nearby hospital where he received treatment for his facial laceration.
A Garda spokesperson said: “Shortly before 9pm on Sunday 22/8/2021, Gardaí and Ambulance services attended at Commons Street, Dublin 1 following reports of a stabbing incident.
“A man in his early 30s was taken to hospital for treatment to a laceration to his face. His injuries are not thought to be life threatening. The scene was preserved and examined by local scenes of crime officers.
“A male has been arrested in connection with this assault and he is currently being detained at a Dublin Garda Station under the provisions of Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984. Investigations are ongoing.”
Yob Ross has over 70 previous convictions, including for the possession of firearms, theft and road traffic offences.
He was released from Dublin’s Wheatfield Prison in February after serving less than two years for armed robbery.
The brute had been caged for holding up Boles Pharmacy in Drumcondra, north Dublin, with a bike saddle in April 2019.
Prior to that, Ross was in Mountjoy Prison after being hit with a six-month sentence for a series of road traffic offences.
His arrest comes just weeks after his family were left reeling from the arrest of uncle Gerry ‘The Monk’ Hutch in Spain.
In 2015, Ross hit the headlines when he won €33,000 on RTE’s Winning Streak for his brother, Edward Hutch Jnr.
He bagged €25,000 in cash and a car worth €8,000 for Eddie Jnr — who happened to be serving a ten-year driving ban at the time.
