Two separate violent incidents in Dublin overnight have left a man suffering knife wounds and a house badly damaged.

Gardai in Kevin Street were alerted to a row between two men that occured in the Patrick Street area of the city centre at around 10pm.

One man in his 30s received a number of slash marks to his face and head with a box cutter or utility type knife.

Although he was injured it is understood he did not require hospital treatment.

No arrests have been made.

In a separate and unrelated incident a house in Finglas came under attack by a number of men armed with clubs and sticks who chased two men innto the property.

The pair were outside a house on Cardiffsbridge Road when up to a dozen men, some armed with sticks, appeared on the scene.

The two men took refuge in the house which then came under attack by the mob, resulting in criminal damage.

It is understood the innocent residents of the house were in no way connected to the row.

Some of the mob fled the scene in a silver car.

No arrests have yet been made in relation to the matter.
