Receptionist threatened with syringe in Limerick hotel robbery
A man walked into the hotel on Dock Road at around 3am, demanding cash.

A 30-YEAR-OLD MAN has been arrested in connection with a robbery at a hotel in Limerick in the early hours of this morning, in which a syringe was used to threaten staff.

Gardaí say a man entered the reception area of the hotel on Dock Road at around 3am and threatened the male receptionist with a syringe.

He demanded cash, and fled the scene with the reception’s cash box.

Gardaí later arrested a man at the Windmill Apartments in the city. He’s being held today at Henry Street Garda Station.

No injuries were sustained during the robbery, according to investigators – and the cash box has been recovered.
