Man stabbed at city centre Luas stop

A YOUNG man lost a huge amount of blood when he was stabbed at a Luas stop in broad daylight in front of shocked commuters and shoppers at the weekend.

The incident unfolded at around 5pm on Saturday when the 20-year-old victim, who lives at Sherrad Street in Dublin's north inner city, was knifed in his left arm during the course of a dispute with a thug.

The attacker fled the area on foot while Luas security staff preserved the scene while they waited for gardai from Store Street station to arrive.

When they got there, they discovered the victim, who was bleeding heavily, being assisted by his 22-year-old pal from the Tallaght area.

The stabbed man was later hospitalised for his injuries.
