Gardaí are now investigating an alleged sexual assault which took place last Thursday in South Dublin.
The incident involving the teenager apparently occurred on Lower Kilmacud Road in Stillorgan on January 10, around 7pm.
The young woman was walking down the road towards Dundrum and noticed a man following her, according to a Garda source.
The man in question is accused of ejaculating on the woman before walking away, after following her for about two kilometres before the attack.
The teenager’s clothes have been taken by the Gardaí to be tested for DNA evidence. A significant amount of CCTV evidence has also been recovered.
A spokeswoman for the Gardaí confirmed officers were investigating “an alleged sexual assault on a female on Lower Kilmacud Road, Dublin on 10th January 2019 at 7pm”.
Gardai are following a definite line of inquiry.
