Two men rushed to hospital with stab wounds after 'random attack' on Dublin's Fade Street
Two men were hospitalised following a late-night stabbing in Dublin’s city centre.
It is understood that four young men, aged between 17 to 19, were seen fleeing the attack, which took place at 11:30 pm on Fade Street.
Two men aged in their mid 20s are understood to have been approached by a group as they crossed over to the Market Bar from the direction of Drury Street.
One of the group began shouting abuse at the men before attacking them.

Both men sustained wounds, with one man being slashed cross his arm while the other suffered a chest injury.
The two groups were not known to one another and the incident is believed to have been a random attack, Garda said.
"Scene has been preserved for examination and the matter is under investigation.
"No persons have yet been arrested," a spokesperson added.
Emergency services attended the scene and the two men have been taken to St James’ Hospital.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Gardaí at Pearse street on 01 666 7000.
