A man is due in court tomorrow morning in relation to an alleged sexual assault in Dublin on 18 December.

An 18-year-old woman was allegedly assaulted after alighting from a Nitelink bus on Littlepace Road at about 4am.

She was walking home when she was approached, threatened and assaulted by a man. She raised the alarm by flagging down a passing taxi after fending off the attacker.

The woman's phone was also taken during the incident.

The man, in his 20s, is due to appear in court tomorrow morning.
