He will appear again in court on September 7th.

A man has been charged with the attempted murder of a pregnant woman who was severely injured in a sustained attack in Dublin city centre.

Gardai launched an investigation after the woman, in her 30s, was taken to hospital after the incident in the early hours of April 25th.

32 year old Dean Paget, of no fixed abode, was arrested in May and had been charged with four violent offences against the same woman, at three locations in the south-side of Dublin.

He was accused of making a threat to kill or cause her serious harm at Drury Street; false imprisonment at Montague Lane; and assault causing her harm at Montague Lane and Dame Lane.

He made no application for bail at his first hearing and was remanded in custody.

Additional charges were put to him for attempted murder of the woman at Montague Lane, another count of assault causing harm and a charge for causing serious harm to her at locations in the Dublin 2 area.

He will appear again in court on September 7th.
