As a community attempts to come to terms with the tragic death of a toddler in an apartment complex in Kimmage this week, police have revealed that an arrest has been made.
According to the Garda Press Office, authorities investigating Omar Omran's death arrested a woman aged in her early 40s this morning in Dublin.
The arrested woman is currently detained at Crumlin Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.
The three-year-old was discovered in the Riverside complex in Poddle Park shortly after 6.30 on Monday evening.
It has been established that the child was killed in what was believed to be a frenzied attack at approximately 4pm that day.
The child's mother, Maha Al-Adheem, was transferred to St James Hospital that same evening.
