GARDAÍ IN DUBLIN have arrested and charged a man following a robbery and attempted robbery at convenience stores in Tallaght yesterday.

Shortly before 8am on Friday, gardaí were alerted following reports of a robbery at a convenience store at a service station in the Jobstown area of Tallaght.

A man entered the stop and threatened a staff member at knife point before leaving with a sum of cash. It’s understood a man armed with a knife had entered another nearby convenience store moments earlier and threatened staff before leaving empty handed.

No one was physically harmed in the incidents, gardaí said.

In a follow-up operation, gardaí later searched a house in the Tallaght area and arrested a man aged in late 20s.

He was detained for questioning in relation to both incidents at Tallaght Garda Station under section four of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.
