A WOMAN who was viciously attacked in Dublin last month as she walked home to her family has sadly passed away.
The woman has been named as Urantsetseg Tserendorj, a Mongolian native in her late 40s.
She had been left fighting for her life in hospital after she was set upon by an attacker and stabbed in the neck as she walked along a pedestrian walkway in Dublin city two weeks ago.
The attack, which took place in the IFSC on January 20, left Ms Tserendorj with serious stab wounds which she sadly could not overcome.
A teenage boy has been arrested and charged with the attack.
A Garda spokesperson confirmed the sad news of her passing in a statement yesterday evening, where they said:
"A woman in her 40s seriously injured in the course of an incident on the 20th of January 2021 while walking on the pedestrian walkway, between Georges Dock and Custom House Quay, IFSC, Dublin 1 was pronounced dead at The Mater University Hospital today, 3rd February 2021."
The spokesperson confirmed they would await a post-mortem to determine the next stage of the investigation.
The victim, a mother-of-two, is understood to have worked as a cleaner in Dublin city and was walking home when the horrific attack occurred.
Shockwaves have been felt across Ireland as knife crimes in Dublin appearsto be on the rise,with several high-profile attacks in recent weeks.
The investigation into Ms Tserendorj's death continues.
