GARDAÍ IN MEATH are investigating a robbery that saw a supermarket staff member suffer injuries.

The robbery occurred at a supermarket on the Fairyhouse Road, Ratoath, County Meath yesterday evening, at around 7.20pm.

A lone man, aged in his late 20s to early 30s, entered the shop in possession of a firearm. He threatened and assaulted staff before leaving the premises with an amount of cash.

The man fled the scene on foot and went in the direction of Riverwalk, a pedestrian area opposite the shop.

A member of staff suffered minor injuries during an altercation with the raider, but all customers were unharmed.

The raider is described as being around 5’11″ in height and of strong build.

He wore a beetroot coloured hooded jumper which had white draw strings and a red t-shirt underneath.

He was also wearing blue jeans, white socks and white runners which had white soles and a black trim around the ankles. The man had a black mask covering his face and was carrying a green plastic bag.

Investigating gardaí are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information is asked to contact Ashbourne Garda Station on 01-8010600, the Garda Confidential line on 1800 666111 or any Garda station.
