A YOUNG WOMAN has been attacked in Cork City centre and was left battered, bruised and bloodied.
The victim, Jade, was attacked on Saturday night by three woman outside a pub on Winthrop Street, and her friends published footage of the aftermath - including Jade's bloodied face - on social media.
Talking to Cork's 96FM Opinion Line with PJ Coogan on Monday morning, Jade claimed she was left traumatised by the experience.
Describing the altercation, she told Coogan: "I tried to pull one of them off my sister, she got me down on the ground and she kept hitting me.
"She ripped my top off. I got a kick in the face, dig in the head, my eyes were left purple. One of them would hit me, I'd get up, another one would hit me."
Jade believes she may have lost conciseness at one point and said that her friends took her to a nearby takeaway to try and get her cleaned up.
She sustained cuts, bruising and a black eye from the assault and has reported the situation to gardai.
Jade also mentioned that her family were left seething after security staff outside a number of premises watched and did nothing to stop the assault.
Gardai confirmed on Sunday that they are investigating the incident.
A spokesman said: "Gardaí in Anglesea Street are investigating a minor assault that occurred on Winthrop Street at approximately 1:30am on Saturday 6th October 2019. A female received minor injuries. Investigation ongoing."
