Woman hospitalised following alleged stabbing incident in Longford

A woman in her early 30s is being treated in the Midlands Regional Hospital in Mullingar following an alleged assault in the town this afternoon.

The woman is being treated for alleged stab wounds after being attacked on Main Street in the town, just metres from the town’s post office.

Eyewitnesses at the scene claim a man was seen running from the scene but no arrests have been made so far.


It’s not believed the woman’s injuries are life threatening and Gardai are appealing for witnesses to contact them.
