A high-profile sportsman is under investigation by Gardaí after a woman in her 20’s reported being forced into a sex act in a car outside a Dublin pub on Friday night.

The man is already under investigation for an alleged rape at a south Dublin hotel late last year, with the DPP yet to decide whether he should be charged.

The latest incident, involving a different woman, was reported to Gardaí on Saturday morning. The woman was described as “traumatised” and a full investigation is underway, but no arrests have been made.

It is thought the woman was socialising with the alleged attacker in the pub, and then the pair left and entered a car parked outside.

The exact whereabouts of the sportsman were not known last night.
