A PREGNANT woman has lost her unborn baby after a "sickening" city centre attack, it's reported.
The mum-to-be was seriously injured after being assaulted in Dublin between 4am and 5am last Sunday.
Following the barbaric attack on Dame Street she was rushed to hospital with serious injuries.
The injured woman, who is in her 30s, later lost the unborn child, the Irish Mirror reports.
She remains in hospital receiving treatment for her injuries after the brutal attack as police hunt the thug who assaulted her.
It's feared her attacker is known to her with a source telling the Irish Mirror the attack on the pregnant woman was "sickening".
They said: "It was a sickening attack, one of the worst imaginable.
“She is still in hospital and has lost her baby. It’s horrific.
“We don’t believe it was a stranger attack. She would have known the attacker before.”
The Gardai police in Dublin have appealed for help to catch the callous attacker.
