GARDAI investigating an assault and kidnapping of a male on Russell Avenue, Dublin have arrested a female in her mid 20's this afternoon.

She is currently detained at Store Street Garda Station under Section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act.

Ciaran Noonan (29) was abducted as he walked in the East Wall area of Dublin last Thursday evening – it is believed the kidnap is related to indebtedness over drugs.

A gang chased the man, attacked him and bundled him into the car before making off at speed.

Meanwhile, a car believed to have been used in the kidnapping has been recovered.

Gardai said the black Volkswagen Golf was found in a car park at Killegland Apartments, Ashbourne, Co Meath, on Saturday evening.

The car is being forensically examined, the Garda press office said.

Gardai in Store Street also renewed their appeal for information on the assault and kidnapping or anyone who may have seen the car between Thursday and Saturday to come forward.
