Major garda investigation underway after 14-yr-old nearly beaten to death by gang of 40 thugs




A major garda investigation is underway after a teenage boy almost lost his life after receiving a bad beating from a gang of 40 evil thugs in Ashbourne, Co. Meath.

A 14-yr-old boy is thankfully said to be recovering in hospital following the sick beating which happened near Tesco in Ashbourne on Friday evening.

The boy’s mother posted an appeal for witnesses to come forward to gardai after her 14-yr-old son was viciously beaten unconscious by a gang of 40 thugs.

The thugs are said to have been carrying knives and randomly attacked the youngster to steal his phone.

In what’s being described as a sinister and deeply evil attack, the thugs stole the boy’s phone and wallet and then dragged him to a secluded car park on a 3rd storey of a building before inflicting a near-death beating.

The attack took place in Ashbourne, Co. Meath on Friday evening with some of the thugs recording the beating and posting it on Snapchat.

The young victim is currently in hospital where his mother says he has severely injured back, neck, arms and legs. The boy is lucky to be alive.

It’s understood the young boy was just standing outside McDonald’s restaurant, minding his own business, when up to 40 other teenagers approached him and just attacked him.

Gardai did their best when they got there and were forced to use pepper spray on the evil attackers.
One youth was arrested with an investigation launched.

Social media users are claiming that the gang were from Tyrellstown in Dublin but gardai have not confirmed or denied this.
