GARDAÍ IN DUBLIN are investigating the mugging of a man in the city centre on Monday evening.

A man in his 50s was injured during the robbery in which a large quantity of cash and cigarettes worth €700 was taken from him.

The incident occurred at 6.50pm, close to the junction of Mount Street and Fitzwilliam Street Lower after the victim was approached by a male when he got out of his car with a package.

A struggle ensued for the package between the two men – leaving the victim with minor injuries.
