Armed Robbery at a Pub in Stepaside on the 6/1/14

Gardaí at Dundrum are investigating an armed robbery at a pub in Stepaside on Monday 6th January.

A Dublin publican in the Stepaside area was the victim of an armed robbery.  As he left his premises and walked through the pub car park to his car an armed raider got out the rear passenger door of a silver Mitzubishi SUV, 98D78028.  He threatened the publican with a handgun and ordered him to hand over the items he was carrying.  As the publican did so many of the items he was carrying dropped to the ground.

The raider fled with some items but failed to take any cash which was presumably what he intended to do.  The silver SUV left at speed, it was being driven by another person.  It travelled down Kilgobbin Road and was abandoned at Kilgobbin Lane.  The gunman was described as being 6’1” tall, slight build, wearing a grey tracksuit and grey balaclava. He had a Dublin accent.  The Mitsubishi had been bought 2 weeks previously and a false name and address were given.
