Our residents association has been trying to get a meeting with the Community Gardai. Even after eventually speaking with them they don't come back with date suggestions. Very, very unprofessional, patronising and annoying.

Looks resolved:


"
With regards the number of attacks on young women over the past few months which included a friend of mine. She positively identified a man in Blanchardstown garda station yesterday who also confirmed it was the same man in all recent attempted attacks.
I'm not sure if you can relay this message on to the group to ease the fears of parents and young women in the area.

A source for that extract is always helpful for people to see.

I'm very surprised, maybe even a bit sceptical, that the guards would state that the person they have in custody at present (and as of yet, far as we know there are no charges) is the same person responsible for all the previous attacks.

Would such a statement, being spread all over social media, not seriously prejudice any further criminal proceedings? I wouldn't like to see a person like this, if guilty of the crime, subsequently get off lightly in court because they could claim they weren't given a fair trial. It just seems like something that the guards wouldn't do, for the often quoted "operational reasons".

That wasn't a statement by the Guards. It was a private message, chosen to be published by the online group themselves.

I think the guards would privately inform someone of that info but they wouldn't publicly state it.

I agree in that the Guards wouldn't issue a statement to confirm that, but privately they'd tell someone in person.

In any case, it's great news. I hope the guy gets what's coming to him, the reports of what was attempted in the park next to CCC last Saturday is chilling and could have ended up who know what way.

I feel a big problem is all of the spurious and false reports that appear on social media, that take from the genuine ones. So many are reported where you ask yourself, 'did you ring the guards?'.

I have to give most of them a health check before taking them even remote serious, but these highlighted ones are genuine.

A response from the superintendent is on the way so it'll be cleared up soon I'm sure.

It seems like the person who did this has not been caught yet, see update below. Good to know what the current situation is in any case.

I believe the person has been identified. the problem is, the Garda would need witnesses for other attacks to come forward and link the same suspect that they have verified for one case - to the other cases.

They need to make the charges stick.

Interesting to see who it is, because it's not an isolated occurrence.
