Masked man armed with knife tries to rob a shop in Ballguile
A male suspect has been arrested following the attempted robbery of a shop in Wicklow town.
On Tuesday, January 31, at 6.30 p.m., a lone male entered Tom Doran's Shop in Ballyguile wearing a balaclava and sunglasses to try and protect his identity. He was holding a knife and threatened a member of staff, demanding they hand over money from the till.
He fled the scene empty-handed and a suspect was apprehended a short time later by Gardai. He was arrested and brought to Wicklow Garda Station for questioning.
He hasn't been charged yet and is still helping Gardai with their enquiries.
