A MAN WAS arrested late last night in Cork, after gardaí received a report of a man attempting to rob a car at knifepoint in the Douglas area.

At around 11.10pm, a woman in her 40s was threatened by a man carrying a knife.

He told her to leave the car when it was stopped at traffic lights.

A Dog Unit attended the scene, and garda dog Lazar found the suspect in a ditch.

A struggle ensued before the man in his 20s was subsequently arrested by attending officers.
