The incident happened on Collinswood Avenue in Dublin 9 yesterday.

A MAN IS due to appear in court today following an armed robbery of a business in Dublin. 

At approximately 3.45pm yesterday afternoon, a lone male, armed with a weapon, entered the business premises on Collinswood Avenue in Dublin 9. He proceeded to threaten staff. 

He left the scene in a taxi with a number of items from the premises. 

In a follow up search, gardaí stopped a taxi on the Swords Road and the suspect attempted to make his escape on foot.

He has since been charged in relation to the robbery and is due to appear before a special sitting of the Criminal Courts of Justice at 10.30am today. 

Investigations are ongoing.
