This is posted on the front page of the Dublin Bears website and it seemed worrying enough to share:
Weâ€™ve had reports of a young, non Irish guy targeting the Bear community in Dublin on various social networks, particularly Growlr. Weâ€™ve been told of 4 instances where he robbed and physically attacked guys at home. The Garda Diversity Officer, Darren Howlett, has asked that all incidents be reported to a local station in confidence so they can build a profile of, and hopefully apprehend this individual.
Garda Howlett can be contacted on 01 6663150 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
