Man arrested over stabbing

A 21-year-old man will appear in court this week charged in relation to an incident which left a Brazilian man hospitalised with a stab wound.

The 28-year-old victim is being treated at Portiuncula Hospital in Ballinasloe, Co Galway, where his condition was described last night as being "serious but stable".

Gardai arrested a 21-year-old man in connection with the incident. He was released yesterday afternoon and will appear before Ballinasloe District Court on Thursday.

Gardai at Ballinasloe (0909-642123) have appealed for witnesses.
