SUPERMARKET staff were tied up and assaulted during a robbery in north Dublin.

Two men are being questioned about the attack after being arrested close to the scene.

About €8,000 was taken during the robbery at Spar in Clarehall at approximately 10.25pm last night.

Gardai said two men entered the supermarket, one armed with a knife, and threatened two members of staff who were subsequently tied up and assaulted.

Staff members, who suffered minor injuries, raised the alarm when both raiders fled on foot.

"A Garda unit was immediately on the scene," said a Garda spokesman.

"Two men matching the description of the raiders were stopped nearby.

"An amount of cash was also recovered."

Both suspects are being held at Coolock Garda Station.
