GARDAI investigating an incident last Sunday in which a young woman was lured to a hotel and imprisoned today made an arrest.
A 47-year-old man was taken into custody in relation to alleged false imprisonment.
He is now detained at Mountjoy Garda Station under the provisions of Section 4 of Criminal Justice Act 1984
It follows an intensive week long investigation after the incident which happened at a Dublin city hotel last Sunday.
The victim had to jump out of a window to escape her attacker who she claims tied her up and attempted to sexually assault her.
After a manhunt, detectives located the suspect at the hospital where he had admitted himself, allegedly under a false name, to be treated for injuries.
