Gardaí have arrested a man after a supermarket in Dublin was robbed by a man yielding a knife.

Yesterday at around 8.30pm, Gardaí responded to reports of a robbery at the Old Bawn Shopping Centre, in Dublin 24.

It is believed that the man who robbed the shop was armed with knife and threatened staff before taking a sum of cash and fleeing the scene.

During a follow-up operation on the Kiltipper Road, a man in his late 30s was arrested and is currently being detained at Rathfarnham Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.

All of the cash taken during the robbery was recovered by Gardaí.

Investigations are ongoing.
