A MAN AND woman have been arrested in Dublin following an attempted robbery at a filling station.

The two suspects entered the filling station on Usher Quay at 9pm last night armed with knives and wearing balaclavas. They threatened staff and demanded money before fleeing the scene empty-handed. No one was injured in the incident.

A patrolling garda unit spotted the man and woman, who are both in their 30s, on Thomas Street a short time later and both suspects were arrested. The knives were also recovered.

They were held overnight at Kevin Street Garda Station and are both scheduled to appear before the Criminal Courts at Parkgate Street at 10.30am.
