GARDAÍ HAVE ARRESTED a man following an armed robbery in a shop yesterday afternoon. 

Officers responded to reports of a robbery at the Old Bawn Shopping Centre in Dublin 24.

A man armed with what’s believed to be a knife entered a supermarket and threatened staff before taking cash and fleeing the scene. 

A garda spokesman said: “During a follow-up operation on the Kiltipper Road, a man in his late 30s was arrested and is currently being detained at Rathfarnham Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.

“All of the cash taken during the robbery was recovered by gardaí. Investigations are ongoing.”
