Two Men To Appear In Court Over Armed Robbery In Dublin


Two men have been arrested following separate armed raids at shops in Dublin yesterday. They both appeared in court this morning.

At a quarter to four yesterday, a man armed with a knife demanded cash from a shop on the Lower Rathmines Road in Dublin’s south city.

He got nothing, and fled empty-handed. Gardaí were alerted and officers arrested a 23-year-old man shortly afterwards

In a second robbery, staff at a pharmacy on Johnstown Road in the southside suburb of Cabinteely were threatened by another man with a knife.

He got away with medical products taken from the shop.

A 43-year-old man was arrested a short time late after being pursued by an off-duty Garda.
