Three hooded teenage girls armed with large knife attack taxi driver in north Dublin

Quote
Gardai are investigating after three girls armed with a large knife tried to hold up a cab driver in north Dublin.

The driver had just dropped off a customer in the Clongriffin area shortly after 10:30pm when the three hooded thugs jumped into the back of his vehicle.  The cabbie demanded that the girls pull down their hoods, telling the trio that he wasn’t going anywhere unless they did, Dublin Live reports.  At that point one of the women pulled out a large knife and threatened the man, who quickly got out of his taxi.  She then jumped in front of the car and a struggle ensued in which the taxi driver managed to get the blade off the girl.  However, the brave driver suffered cuts to his hands in the attack, while the three teens fled.

Gardai were called and immediately began hunting for the thugs.  They said in a statement: "Gardaí are investigating the attempted hijacking of a car on Bridge St, Clongriffin, Coolock.  "The incident occurred on the 4th April 2019 at approximately 10.30pm. Three females in their teens allegedly threatened the taxi driver and attempted to take the car.  "The females left the scene on foot and the man received a minor injury to his hand. No arrests have been made and investigations are ongoing." 

The taxi man's distraught partner took to social media to warn other drivers that the three were at large .  Below her warning, one man said this terrifying attack highlighted the need for a garda station in the area.  He commented: "This is atrocious behaviour.  "We are campaigning for a Garda station for the Clongriffin area at the moment and these kind of incidents (if reported) only make a more compelling case to get something set up.  "I take taxis regularly and the Dublin drivers are an amazing bunch of people, really glad the driver got out okay and unscathed.  "Look after yourselves out there and stay safe."

Clongriffin is the new Darndale.
Clarehall was Darndale East.

Clongriffinn is the detritus from Clonshaugh and Balgriffin.  8)
