TWO TEENAGERS HAVE been arrested after a shop worker suffered head injuries during a robbery in Dublin 9 last night. 

The two males, one aged in his late teens and the other aged in his mid-teens, entered the shop in the Shantalla Road area at approximately 9.40pm. 

The male in his late teens is reported to have assaulted a member of staff before both men left the scene with a stolen bottle of wine.
