A MAN in his early twen­ties was yes­ter­day (Tues­day) be­ing ques­tioned at Bray Garda Sta­tion in con­nec­tion with a hor­rific stab­bing at­tack at Charles­land in Grey­stones on Mon­day night.

A woman in her fifties was se­ri­ously in­jured in the in­ci­dent when she was stabbed a num­ber of times in the chest and ab­domen area at around 8.2 5 p.m.

The alarm was raised by an­other per­son who was at the scene, and the vic­tim was rushed by am­bu­lance in crit­i­cal con­di­tion to St. Vin­cent’s Hospi­tal, where she is still re­cov­er­ing from the hor­rific as­sault. She was yes­ter­day said to be in a sta­ble state.

The search of the area for ev­i­dence con­tin­ued un­til af­ter 11 p.m. ‘There were loads of de­tec­tives around,’ said a res­i­dent. ‘They had big flood­lights and it looked like they were search­ing for some­one.’ The scene was pre­served by Gar­daí overnight. As word of the stab­bing spread through­out the quiet cul-de-sac in the usu­ally peace­ful es­tate, res­i­dents re­acted with shock to what had hap­pened.

‘I heard sirens for ages as I sat at home,’ said a woman liv­ing in the area. ‘But it took a while for it to reg­is­ter that some­thing se­ri­ous had hap­pened.’

She and other home­own­ers in Charles­land ex­pressed their sym­pa­thy to the in­jured woman and said that they hope she makes a full re­cov­ery.
