Gardai are investigating after a woman (20s) was seriously assaulted while on a walk in Dundalk.

The attack took place just after 7.30pm on Thursday night when the woman was on the Táin walk, which connects the Newry Road and the Inner Relief Road in Dundalk.

He then fled on foot and headed northwards on to the Inner Relief Road.

Detectives are calling for anyone who witnessed the incident itself or has any other further information to come forward.
