Gardaí have charged a man in connection with a robbery in Co Dublin on Saturday night.

The incident happened at around 9.20pm, when a lone man entered a commercial premises in Balrothery.

The man - who was wearing a balaclava over his face - demanded cash.

A female employee was assaulted during the incident, but did not require medical attention.

The man left the scene on foot with a sum of cash.

Gardaí from Balbriggan - assisted by members of the Armed Support Unit (ASU) - later searched a house in Balbriggan in connection with the robbery and a man was arrested.

A 44-year-old man has now been charged in connection with the incident, and will appear before Swords District Court this morning.
