A MAN IS due to appear in court tomorrow morning following the robbery of a McDonald’s yesterday evening.

Yesterday evening at about 7.30pm a man entered the McDonald’s on the Lower Rathmines Road.

He approached a female cashier and threatened her with a knife. The man took a sum of money from the tills and left the premises.

He left the scene in a taxi and later got out at the Milltown Road. The cashier was uninjured.

A number of garda units responded to the robbery and the man was found attempting to cross the Dodder river.

He was arrested and brought to Rathmines Garda Station where he was detained under the provisions of Section 4 of The Criminal Justice Act 1984.

He has now been charges and is due to appear before court tomorrow morning.
