Gardaí have arrested a man and woman in relation to a hijacking and robbery in west Tipperary.
Shortly after 3.10pm last Friday, officers received a report of an incident in Clonoulty.
A man, armed with what is believed to be a knife, approached a red Volkswagen Passat and threatened the driver.
He demanded she get out of the car. The driver exited the car and the man drove off.
At approximately 3.30pm, Gardaí received a report of a robbery at post office in Rossmore.
A man entered the post office, threatened staff with what is believed to be a knife and left the scene with a small sum of money.
Gardaí also believe that the car used during the incident was the Red Volkswagen Passat that had been stolen earlier.
No people were injured during either incident.
An investigation was carried out in Thurles and two search warrants were carried out at houses in Kildare and Tipperary on March 11th.
A man aged in his 20s and a woman in her 30s were arrested and brought to Thurles Garda station.
Both have since been charged in connection with these incidents.
They are due to appear before Cashel District Court later on Thursday.
