Gardai launch search for sex-attack duo

A SEARCH for two men in their 30s has been started by gardai after a vicious sex attack on a 14-year-old girl.

Officers in Letterkenny said they also want to quiz the men about an assault on her 24-year-old friend.

The pals were attacked in a town-centre alleyway in the Co Donegal town on Saturday morning at 4am. Both girls were treated in hospital and later released. Gardai said last night that they still had to take a full statement from the victims.

But they were satisfied from initial inquiries that the teenager was subjected to a degrading sex assault and that her older friend suffered bruising to her face.

The pair were dragged into an alleyway as they walked along Lower Main Street.

Gardai said the incident is the latest in a series of sex-related assaults in the town.
