A young boy was “lured into a lane” by a kid gang and brutally assaulted during a vicious Dublin incident.
The 12-year-old victim was attacked by three kids after they managed to corner him down the dark path.
He was beaten so bad that the gruesome gang left him with black eyes before fleeing the scene.
Councillor Anthony Flynn, an uncle of the victim, said the pictures were upsetting
He tweeted: “Sent images tonight by my sister of my 12-year-old nephew who was assaulted by three kids.
“They lured him into a lane and left him with black eyes.
“He’s one of the nicest, most quiet kids you’d ever come across.
“I’m not going to post pictures of him, but it’s really upsetting.”
Dublin Live has contacted Gardai about the incident.
