Two arrested over sex attacks

GARDAI investigating a suspected stalker-style series of sex attacks have arrested two young men.

The men -- in their late teens and early 20s -- were arrested by officers examining separate sex attacks in Cork city centre on December 3 last.

The most disturbing attack involved a woman in her 30s being dragged on to church grounds where she was subjected to a serious sexual assault.

The men were arrested by Gardai in Kanturk and Mallow before 9am yesterday and can be held for up to 24 hours.
