Gardaí have charged a 47-year-old man in connection with an attack on a woman in Dublin last weekend.

The woman alleged she escaped after she was held against her will at a bed and breakfast in the city last Sunday night.

She told detectives that she was there with a man who assaulted her in one of the rooms and that she made her escape by climbing out a window.

The man was arrested in Beaumont yesterday morning and charged this evening. He will appear in court tomorrow morning.
