GARDAÍ IN DUBLIN are investigating a robbery that saw two women robbed at gunpoint.

The robbery occurred on New Ireland Road, Rialto Dublin 8 on 7 December.

Two women had collected an undisclosed amount of cash from a bank on the Crumlin Road Dublin 12, they left the bank and drove to New Ireland Road, Rialto, where they parked their car at around 12.45pm.

As the passenger was exiting the car a lone male on foot approached her and pushed her back into the car, produced a hand gun and threatened both women.

The man then proceeded to take a handbag containing the cash, believed to be around €55,000, and the keys of the car. The man then went down New Ireland Road on a pedal cycle.

He is described as being around 5’9″ and wearing dark clothing, a hi-vis vest, sunglasses and a helmet.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to contact them, in particular for anyone who they may have seen acting suspiciously around South Circular Road or New Ireland Road prior to the robbery. Gardaí are also seeking any motorists who were travelling from St James’s Hospital to Rialto on South Circular Road, Dublin 8 or vice versa who may have a dash camera.

The times required are between 12.30pm and 1pm on 7 December.
