Man arrested after threatening pedestrian with a hammer and robbing their dog
Gardaí have arrested and charged a man in relation to a robbery incident in Cork on 11 April this year.
Around 4.30pm, a man was walking his dog on the Ballincollie Road in Ballyvolane when a car pulled up beside him.
A man got out of the car, armed with what is believed to be a hammer, and threatened the man to hand over his dog.
The dog was taken and put into the car and the man then left the scene.
Gardaí were called to the scene and as part of the investigation the dog was recovered by Detective Gardaí from Watercourse Road and was returned to the owner on 12 April.
A man, aged in his late 20s, was arrested on 19 April and detained at Mayfield Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.
He has since been charged and is due to appear before Cork City District Court on Tuesday morning.
