GARDAI are investigating a sexual assault on a teenage girl outside her home in south Dublin.
The girl was attacked as she stood outside the front door of her house in Crumlin. She was grabbed by a man, who dragged her around to the side of the house and attacked her.
The incident was reported to gardai at Sundrive Road around 1.30am yesterday and a search for the sex fiend was carried out in the area.
Officers yesterday completed house-to-house inquiries near her home as they attempted to build up a description of the attacker and his movements.
The victim was taken to the sexual assault unit at the Rotunda hospital and discharged later.
