Gardai say they have made significant progress in their investigation into a serious assault on two teenagers.

It happened in Ballyfermot in Dublin.

Both victims have been released from hospital today, and will continue to receive treatment as outpatients. 

Gardai say the boy and girl in their late teens were approached and assaulted by a group of youths.

It was as they walked along Ballyfermot Road, opposite the Community Civic Centre, last Thursday at 9.35pm. 

Officers have set up an incident room at Ballyfermot Garda Station, and are renewing their appeal for witnesses. 

Support Vigil

A vigil is taking place later this week in Ballyfermot to support Alanna Quinn Idris.

She suffered a ruptured eyeball, broken bones and broken teeth during the attack. 

The vigil will be held at Ballyfermot Civic Centre on Saturday at 11am.

Organisers say they want to send out a clear message that Ballyfermot demands safer streets for young people.
