A MAN IN his 50s has been arrested and charged over a robbery at a shop in Ballydaheen, Mallow in Cork yesterday evening.

Just after 6.30pm, a man believed to have been carrying a knife entered the stop, threatened staff and demanded cash from the shop assistant.

He then left the scene with a sum of cash.

Gardaí, assisted by the Southern Region Dog Unit, carried out a search of the area and a man in his 50s was arrested. 

The knife believed to have been used in the robbery was also recovered.

He was taken to Mallow Garda Station and detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.

He has since been charged and is due to appear before a sitting of Cork city District Court at 10.30am today.
