A woman was left injured and shaken after a man "kicked her in the face" earlier this week.

The victim - who has not been identified - was attacked by a man shortly after 3.30am on Monday morning on Upper Henry Street in Limerick.

Metropolitan Mayor Sean Lynch condemned the incident and said he hopes the perpetrator is caught.

The Fianna Fail representative told Independent.ie: "I believe the woman sustained injuries to her lip and nose when she was attacked.

"I'm not sure if she had to be treated in hospital but it's shocking alone to hear about an attack on a female."

The Limerick Leader reports that the man "brutally kicked in the face."

Mr Lynch appealed for anyone with any information to contact gardai, who he said are still trying to establish a motive.

He said: "Thankfully this isn't something we hear about on a regular basis in the area, it's out of character.

"It's definitely not something we want to hear about again anytime soon either."

Anyone with  information is urged to contact Henry Street station at 061-212400, The Garda Confidential Line 1 800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
