Gardaí have arrested two people following an armed robbery in north Dublin on Saturday night.

The theft took place shortly before 10pm last night, 22nd January, when a man entered a shop in Waterside, Malahide, armed with a hammer.

He forced members of staff to open the till before taking a sum of cash and fleeing in a vehicle waiting outside the premises.

No staff member was harmed in the incident.

A man in his 30s and a woman in her 50s were arrested a short time later and were brought to two Dublin Garda stations where they are both detained under the provisions of Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.
