Shortly after 9.00am this morning, a courier van driver was accosted, at a fuel service station between Gormanstown and Julianstown.

The van driver was assaulted a number of times by at least two men and a number of items were taken from the van.

One of the men is described as being in his 40's, around 6 foot in height and with sallow skin.

He was wearing a beanie hat and had his face covered with a scarf, he was also wearing a dark coloured jacket.

The second man is described as being smaller in height and wearing long black wig.

A white Ford Transit van also believed to have used in the robbery was later found abandoned at Gravemeadows, Stamullen.

Anyone who may have witnessed this robbery or who have information is asked to contact Gardai.
