Two arrested after armed raid on petrol station

Two men have been arrested following an armed robbery at a Dublin petrol station last night.

At about 10.15pm two men entered the Topaz premises on the Howth road, one of whom was armed with a knife.

One kept lookout while the other jumped the counter, threatened staff and stole cash from their tills.

The pair made their getaway in a taxi, but jumped out a short distance away.

Gardaí later arrested two men, one aged 30 and the other aged 42. They are due to appear at Dublin District Court this morning.
