A teenager was rushed to hospital this morning after he was stabbed during an assault in a housing estate.

Gardaí in Tallaght responded to an emergency call in Knockmore Grove at approximately 6am.

Here they discovered the man, aged in his late teens, who had received a single stab wound.

He was taken by ambulance to Tallaght Hospital where he was treated for non life-threatening injuries.

He was alone when gardaí arrived on the scenes and officers are now searching for the assailant.

A garda spokeswoman confirmed that no arrests had been made.

She appealed for witnesses to contact Tallaght garda station on 01-6666000

The attack comes just over a week after an 85-year-old man was pulled from his car by a man and a woman in Tallaght. He received substantial injuries from a bread knife to his throat and face.

Surgeons were also forced to remove half of his finger because of nerve damage caused during the attack when it was partially severed. The man also needed a blood transfusion during a five day hospital stay according to reports.

The attack on the innocent man happened in Tallaght on Wednesday, February 22.
