TWO MEN IN their 20s have been arrested following an aggravated robbery at a night safe in Tallaght in Dublin last night.
The victim was about to lodge a quantity of documents and cheques at a bank night safe on Main Street Tallaght shortly before mid-night when he was approached by two men. One was armed with what appeared to be a firearm and the other carried a hammer and forced the victim to hand over the document bag.
The thieves fled and after a search of the area was carried out by Gardaí two men were arrested and the bag and contents were recovered.
The two men, who have local addresses, are detained at Tallaght and Rathfarnham Garda Stations under Section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act 1939 and can be detained for up to seventy two hours.
