Midlands Gardaí Investigating Assault Appeal For Witnesses

Gardaí are trying to track down a car they believe was linked to the attack.

There's an appeal for witnesses after a man was slashed in the legs during a row in Longford Town yesterday evening.

Gardaí are trying to track down a car they believe was linked to the attack.

Reports of an attack by a gang of men brought Gardaí to the Glebe View housing estate in Longford Town at around half past eight.

They found a man in his twenties with a number of lacerations to his legs outside a house there.

Paramedics took him to the Midlands Regional Hospital Mullingar, and Gardaí believe he'll survive the wounds.

They've already found one of the cars they believe was used by the attackers, a blue ZERO-FIVE Citroen C5, burnt out between Modow and Ballycloghan to the south of Longford town.

They're still looking for another - a gold-coloured Nissan Almera, seen near Moydaw last night.

Longford Garda Station wants to hear from anyone who was in Glebe View between seven and nine last night.

Gardaí there also want to speak to anyone who might have seen those cars in the Keel Moydaw area between seven and ten -- and have asked local drivers with dashcams to share their footage.
