A Dublin businessman was stabbed by machete-wielding thugs in a shocking daylight attack in the capital.
The victim, who is aged in his 40s, was repeatedly stabbed in a car park in Finglas after he left a local gym on Thursday morning.
The man received serious injuries to the chest and face in the brutal attack and was rushed to the Mater Hospital. The Irish Mirror understands that he was conscious following the attack after a number of locals rushed to his aid.
A source said: “It’s absolutely shocking, he was walking back to his car when he was attacked. This happened in the morning. There were lots of people going about their business where it happened. The attackers jumped out of a car and carried out the assault before fleeing the scene. People can’t believe it.”
Gardai cordoned off the scene yesterday and were carrying out a technical examination. A spokesman said: “No arrests have been made at this stage of this ongoing investigation.
“Gardai are appealing for any witnesses to this incident to come forward. Any road users or pedestrians who may have camera footage (including dash-cam) and were travelling in the Main Street area of Finglas between 10am and 11am are asked to make this footage available to Gardaí.
