The man was arrested yesterday as part of Operation Thor and detained at Naas Garda Station under section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.

Last Saturday, a female motorist was threatened at knife point by a lone man in the Coill Dubh area of Kildare at around 7.30pm. A small amount of cash was taken during the incident. The man fled the scene on foot.

The next day, at around 6.30pm, a man armed with a crowbar entered a shop on Main Street, Prosperous, Co Kildare before making off with a small amount of cash. No one was injured during the incident.
