GARDAI are investigating an incident in Dungloe on Thursday evening where it is alleged that a man wielding a knife jumped out in front of a school pupil.

It is understood the National School student was making his way home when the incident occurred in the early evening.

Gardai were carrying out house to house enquiries in the quay road area last night.


No injuries were reported and it is understood the child made his way safely to his home.

The incident led to both schools in the town – St Crona’s and the Rosses Community School – sending text alerts to parents asking them to ensure students are dropped off and picked up from school and not to allow them walk home.
