Kilkenny mother out walking her baby attacked by youths firing rocks
Youths fired rocks and stones at a defenceless young Kilkenny mother who was pushing a buggy with a young child inside.
The cowardly and unprovoked attack occurred at the Canal, close to Kilkenny Castle. The woman was out for a walk, pushing her young child in a buggy, when the group of youths started throwing rocks and stones at her.
The terrified woman was forced to cover the buggy to protect the child. Fortunately neither she nor her child were injured in the incident, but she was left shaken by the ordeal.
The youths ran off before the gardai arrived at the scene.
Gardai have urged anyone who witnessed the attack, or who may have information about the incident, to contact Kilkenny Garda Station on 056 777 5500.
