“There was a young guy, in his early 20s, and he just pulled up on the kerb.

"He got out of the car and started pouring petrol over the car, then ran across the road to a waiting van, which drove in the direction towards Naas Road towards Kylemore/Clondalkin.”

A garda spokesperson said: “A car was found abandoned and partially burnt out near the Naas Road, on July 13, at approximately 6.15pm. Investigations are ongoing.”
