Gardaí have appealed for a cyclist who may have witnessed a terrifying jewellery shop raid to make contact.

A shop worker was stabbed in the arm and raiders escaped with a number of items, including valuable watches, during the raid at Bouchon jewellers in the Diamond, Malahide on January 21.

Gardaí have now issued a fresh appeal for help locating the two raiders.

And a CCTV image of a cyclist who may have spotted the suspects has been released.

"Investigating Gardaí are appealing for witnesses, or anyone who may have been cycling or walking in the Yellow Walls Road area who may have observed the black hatchback car being driven dangerously or at any time prior to or after the robbery.

"Following a review of CCTV footage Gardai are appealing for a cyclist who may have seen the car or suspects involved, the cyclist was wearing white runners, blue jeans and an anorak type jacket, to contact them at Malahide Garda Station on 01 6664600."

Two men entered a jewellers shop at The Diamond, Malahide Village at approximately 5pm and they threatened staff. They stole a number of items, including watches during the robbery.

One female staff member suffered non life threatening injuries in an altercation with the men. Both suspects ran in the direction of St Margaret's Avenue, Malahide.

A short time after the robbery a black coloured hatchback car was observed "driving in a dangerous manner in the Yellow Walls Road area", Malahide.

The suspects, both male, are described as being 1, 5'9" around 50 years of age, wearing glasses and a yellow jacket. The second man was wearing a black jacket, white hat and was much younger than the first.
