GARDAÍ ARRESTED A 41-year-old man today in connection with a carjacking last week.

This evening, they said that the man will appear in court tomorrow morning charged in relation to the hijacking and robbery.

Two children and their mother were inside the car that was hijacked last Friday afternoon in Terenure in Dublin.

The man claimed to have a weapon, and forced the woman to drive to her home, retrieve bank cards, and withdraw cash.

He then forced her to drive the car to Portobello at which point he left the car, gardaí say.

No one was injured in the incident.
