Three juveniles arrested in connection with Navan assault

In connection with this week's assault on a teenage boy in Navan, Co. Meath, the Garda arrested three juveniles.

Following the assault on Monday afternoon, the man was brought to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda, where he got treatment for serious facial injuries.

The three teenagers were reportedly detained in the Navan area earlier on Friday for alleged violations of Section 3 of the Non-Fatal Offences Against Person Act 1999.

According to a statement from Garda, "All three are currently detained under section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984 at Garda stations in the Meath Region."

In order to show respect for the victim, it was said that the Garda is aware of a social media video that has been circulating about the event.

Anyone with information about the attack is urged to call the Garda Confidential Line at 1800666111, the Navan Garda station at 046-9079930, or any Garda station.
