Gardaí are investigating an assault on a young man at the Corrib Oil filling station on the Neale Road, Ballinrobe today.
The incident occurred at 12.17pm this afternoon and the injured man (20s) was taken by ambulance to hospital.
A car believed to be connected to the incident took off in the direction of Tuam and Gardaí say they have since located an abandoned car outside Kilmaine, which they believe it to be connected to the car that left the scene of the assault.
Two men were observed in the vehicle and Gardaí are continuing to search for the occupants of the car.
The scene of the assault has been cordoned off and a Garda investigation is underway.
Gardaí are asking anyone who may have witnessed anything suspicious around noon time today in the Ballinrobe area or witnessed the incident at the filling station or may have dashcam footage to contact Claremorris Garda Station.
