Ireland: Police arrest ‘Middle-Eastern man’ after one person killed and two injured in ‘random stabbing attack’

One person has died and two others have been injured in what is being described as a ‘random stabbing attack’ in Ireland.

Gardai are said to have arrested a Middle-Eastern man, according to Ireland’s News 3, and officers are investigating if three separate incidents are terror related.

The knife attack happened shortly before 9am in Dundalk and the victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Let’s hope the Garda arrested everyone who complained about this.

      I wonder what would happen if the dead was “Law Enforcement” instead of only a Mere Citizen…

          A tourist would be more likely to be in Drogheda. Dundalk is more of an industrial town.

    Another report is that the assailant is an Egyptian illegal. The three separate crime scenes are all on the east side of Dundalk, and were reported at 9:00, 9:32 and 9:40 am. The 18-year-old arrested was carrying two knives.
