Man in Dublin attempts armed robbery while armed gardaí are in the store
No shots were fired during the incident.

A man was arrested a short distance away.

A 29-year-old man has been arrested by Gardaí following an armed robbery in Ballymun on Tuesday.

On Tuesday evening, a lone male entered a shop on Coultry Road at around 7pm and proceeded to threaten staff with a suspected firearm. A sum of money was stolen from the till.

Two armed Garda detectives happened to be in the store at the time and confronted the man who fled on foot.

A man was then arrested a short distance away during a follow up search, and a sum of money was recovered.

The arrested man was taken to Ballymun Garda Station where he is currently detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.

No shots were fired during the incident and there were no injuries reported.
