GARDAÍ HAVE ARRESTED a man this morning in connection with the robbery of a shop yesterday evening in the Dublin 6 area.

At approximately 8:15pm, a lone male entered a shop on Kimmage Road Lower and threatened staff with a knife, demanding the contents of cash registers in the store.

The man then fled the scene on foot with the cash.

No one was injured during the course of this incident.
