Woman 'sexually assaulted' by taxi driver in north Dublin on way home from night out
The woman, believed to be in her 30s, had been picked up by a registered taxi from the Main Street in Malahide after socialising in the area and was heading in the Swords direction.
It is believed after the taxi driver dropped off the other people in the car, the alleged victim was left alone with the driver for a stretch of road.
The taxi driver then allegedly sexually assaulted the woman in the car shortly after midnight.
The woman arrived home shaken afterwards and reported the alleged incident to gardai.
It is understood gardai are speaking to someone in relation to the alleged sexual assault.
Gardai confirmed investigations into the incident are ongoing but no arrests have been made.
A spokesperson said: "We are investigating a report of an alleged sexual assault on 2nd December at 12.30am."
In a similar, but not connected, incident in the capital at the weekend a young German student was allegedly assaulted in the early hours of Monday morning.
The woman, aged in her 20s, had left a pub in the city centre when she was dragged down a lane at Winetavern Street in the Christchurch area and allegedly raped.
It is understood the young woman was seen by staff at the Dublin Sexual Assault Treatment Unit in the Rotunda Hospital and she has given gardaí a full statement.
She has since returned to Germany to be with her family.
