Gardai make arrest after woman falsely imprisoned at hotel

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.
