Man threatened staff in Kildare town store with knife

Gardai are appealing for information

A lone masked raider threatened staff with a knife at a Kildare town store, making off with €300 in cash.

The robbery occurred at 4.20pm on Saturday.

The man, who had his face covered, entered the Eurostar discount store on Claregate Street and demanded the shop worker hand over the cash.

It's understood he fled the premises on foot.

Anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area on the day in question should contact gardai at Kildare Garda Station on 045 521222.

It would have been bright at that time of the evening so passersby may have seen a masked man running from the shop.
