Attacks on sex workers

Seven sex workers have contacted Gardaí to report attacks within the last month.

Gardaí say an online appointment's made on each occasion, but the sex worker is later robbed by a number of men.

They say the attacks are primarily happening in the Dublin area.

Detectives attached to 'Operation Quest' are liaising with local detective units in relation to the attacks, primarily in the Dublin area.

Since the middle of October, seven attacks have occurred nationwide on sex workers advertising services on online sites.

Gardaí say the motive for these attacks appears to be for money - although violence has been used.

An Garda Síochána is also appealing to any person with information on these targeted attacks to contact them via the Garda Confidential Number at 1800-666-111 or any Garda station.
