Man charged after screwdriver used to rob petrol station

The robbery occurred at around 4pm yesterday afternoon.

GARDAÍ HAVE ARRESTED and charged a man in his 20s in relation to a robbery at a petrol station on Grange Road, Baldoyle, Dublin 13.

The robbery occurred at around 4pm yesterday afternoon.

Two men entered the petrol station, one armed with what is believed to be a screw driver and demanded cash from staff. Having left with a sum of money, the two men then attempted to take a car but failed to do so.

Gardaí were alerted and after a search of the area one man was arrested and a sum of cash was recovered.

The man was detained at Howth Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984 and has since been charged to appear before the Criminal Courts of Justice today.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses to contact Howth Garda Station on 01-666-4900, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800-666-111 or any garda station.
