DUBLIN, Ireland - Gardai are continuing their search for a Dublin taxi driver who, in the early hours of Friday morning, picked up a woman who was later assaulted.

The cabbie apparently picked up the woman, and a man, both of whom are white, from a location in Dublin's South inner city and taken to Cappagh Road in Finglas, Dublin 11. The pair, both aged in their 20s, were picked up about 1:30am on Friday morning. The taxi is then believed to have travelled to Finglas via the industrial estate in Ballycoolin.

The woman had blonde hair and was wearing high boots, a pink blazer, and a black jacket. The man was of average height and build and was wearing a red top with blue jeans.

The assault allegedly took place near Cappagh Road in Finglas, Co.Dublin.

The taxi driver or anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to come forward and contact Finglas Garda Station on 01 6667500, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111, or any Garda Station.

"No arrests have been made. Investigations are ongoing," Gardai said in a statement released on Thursday.

"An Garda Siochana is aware of a significant volume of misinformation and disinformation in circulation with regards to this ongoing investigation. For clarity, gardai are following a definite line of inquiry and are not looking for anyone else at this time," the statement said.
