FIVE women have been sexually assaulted in the same area of west Dublin in just weeks – with gardai now fearing there may be more than one sex attacker on the loose.
On Monday, a young woman was attacked in broad daylight by a man who approached her at random, before groping her and fleeing.
She was believed to be fifth sexual assault victim in the area since the middle of May.
Investigators are probing the theory that there may be more than one sex attacker targeting the west Dublin suburb.
As part of the garda response, senior officers have directed that uniformed patrols in certain areas be increased.

GROPED

Independent.ie has learned that gardai are investigating at least five sex attacks, all carried out in the Blanchardstown area.
In each incident, the victims were approached by an unknown man and groped before the attacker fled the scene.
The young victims – all aged in their teens and 20s – have given a similar description of the offender, saying he is a tanned man of slim build in his early to mid-20s.

The first of three attacks took place in May while two further assaults were reported this month.
It has now emerged that gardai are probing the possibility that more than one attacker could be targeting women in west Dublin, as a chief suspect in the initial attacks is currently in custody on separate charges.

Between May 10 and 11, three attacks were reported in the Manorfields area of Blanchardstown.
Owing to the nature of the attacks they are all being treated as sexual assaults by gardai.
A number of suspects were identified and last month gardai arrested a man.
