Man arrested over indecent assault at Cavan

02 Aug 2020 3:38pm

A man has been arrested after an investigation into an indecent assault at Cavan.

Police will allege that about 10.15am today (Sunday 2 August) a woman was walking along Port Wakefield Road near Thomas Street, when an unknown man grabbed the woman from behind and indecently assaulted her.

The victim managed to break free and called police immediately. She was not injured.

She provided police with a detailed description of the suspect, and this afternoon detectives from Northern District CIB arrested a 31-year-old Northfield man at his house.

He has been charged with indecent assault, and has been bailed to appear in the Elizabeth Magistrates Court on 8 September.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident, or was driving near the area at the time and may have captured the incident on dashcam footage is asked to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or online at
