Gardaí are investigating an alleged robbery and false imprisonment incident in Finglas, Dublin, yesterday.

Gardaí stopped and searched a van on Main Street, Finglas, and found three males inside including a 32-year-old being held against his will.

It's understood the man, who was walking home from work, had his mobile phone and wallet taken when confronted by the two occupants before they ordered him into the van.

Two males, both in their 20s, were arrested at the scene and are currently detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984 at Finglas Garda Station. A wallet and phone belonging to the man have been recovered. The van was seized for forensic examination.

The men are due to appear in court on Saturday, charged in connection with the incident.

Investigations are continuing.
