A man in his 20s is expected to appear in court in connection with two recent robbery incidents in Co. Kildare.

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.
