Robbery from the person at Rathgar, Dublin 6 on the 23/11/14

Gardaí at Terenure Garda Station are investigating a robbery from a business man that occurred in the early hours of Sunday the 23rd November 2014.

A business man left his place of work in Rathmines at 4.35am to make a cash lodgement at a night safe of a bank in Rathgar Village. When he arrived at the bank, there was a taxi parked in front of him and what appeared to be a woman using the ATM machine. As the business man approached the night safe to lodge the money he was set upon by the person at the ATM, who Gardaí now believe was a man.  He was armed with a handgun. A struggle ensued between them. As this robbery was in progress the driver of the taxi removed the business man’s car keys from his car.

The armed man got back into the taxi and the car travelled at speed from the scene. A large sum of money was stolen during this robbery.


• Gardaí are appealing to anyone who was in the Rathmines area on Saturday evening into Sunday morning and may have seen suspicious activity to come forward.

• The car used in this robbery was a Silver Hyundai i40. It was stolen on the 19th of November 2014 in Castleknock. It was fitted with a false registration number plate, 12CE1549. This car was recovered parked in a communal car park in Harold’s Cross at 4pm on Sunday the 23rd November. The keys of this car were not recovered. Gardaí are appealing to anyone who may have information in relation to this vehicle to come forward.

• The taxi roof sign was stolen on the 15th October 2014 from Blanchardstown. It was recovered on a footpath on Ferrard Road, just off Terenure Road East at 10am on Sunday the 23rd November 2014.
