Gardai invaded a house in north Dublin last night, blocking the road for hours after a man attacked another in a house.
Officers rushed to Finglas shortly after 9 p.m. when residents sounded the alarm during a disturbance in the Wellmount Park area.
There was a “huge guard presence” in the area, with locals only able to watch in fear when screams filled the air.
The injured man is currently recovering from injuries at Connolly Hospital.
An eyewitness told Dublin Live of his terror after the attack.
They said: “Someone was taken in an ambulance and there was a huge guard presence blocking the road.”
Another added: “The helicopter was involved, you could hear a commotion in the house with screams. It was very scary.
A Garda spokeswoman told Dublin Live: “Officers have reported an incident of assault which occurred on Thursday, June 3, around 9:30 pm, in Wellmount Park.
“A man assaulted another man in a house and he was taken to James Connolly Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.”
She added: “No further information is available and investigations are ongoing.”
