The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - NEWS -

GAR­DAÍ in Tralee have launched an in­ves­ti­ga­tion af­ter a man was stabbed in an es­tate in the town as he made his way home on Fri­day evening.

The in­ci­dent oc­curred in the Shanakill area of Tralee at ap­prox­i­mately 7.30pm on Fri­day evening.

The vic­tim of the at­tack was walk­ing through a laneway in an area to­wards the rear of Shanakill es­tate when he was stopped and set upon by a man who de­manded that he hand over his wal­let.

When the vic­tim re­fused he was punched. The at­tacker then pro­duced a knife and stabbed the man. The in­jured man was treated for his wounds at Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal Kerry but gar­daí said his in­juries were not se­ri­ous.

Gar­daí are ex­am­in­ing CCTV footage from the area in a bid to iden­tify the at­tacker who was wear­ing a black hooded top and multi coloured scarf. Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact Tralee Garda Sta­tion.
