An investigation is underway after a gang of people set upon a van as it tried to make its way down Letterkenny Main Street last weekend.
The incident occurred on Saturday night, one of the busiest nights of the year for Letterkenny as crowds gathered for the rally weekend.
A van was travelling down Main Street at 10.20pm when it met large crowds standing on both sides of the road outside Dillon’s Hotel.
The driver was trying to move around the crowds when a number of people set up on the van.
Gardaí report that the group was banging on the sides of the van and opening the doors.
The incident resulted in one of the doors being significantly damaged. The locking mechanism was broken and the van owner can no longer close the door.
CCTV footage is set to be analysed as part of the investigation.
Gardaí are also appealing for witnesses to come forward, or anyone with any information is being asked to contact Letterkenny Garda Station on (074) 916 7100 or the Garda Confidential line on 1800 666 111
