Robbery at Eating Establishment at Clondalkin, Dublin 22 on the 17/1/21

Gardaí at Clondalkin Garda Station are investigating a robbery that occurred at an eating establishment at the Nangor Road, Clondalkin, Dublin 22 on 17 January 2021.

At approximately 19:39 on the night in question a white Volkswagon Golf registration 141-SO-909, pulled into a retail park and two suspects were seen exiting the vehicle and entering an eating establishment. 

The first suspect was armed with chisel and the second suspect carried a crutch.  The two suspects entered the eating establishment. Suspect (1) jumped over the counter and threatened the staff members.  Suspect (2) jumped onto the counter and waived his crutch in a threatening manner towards the staff. 

Suspect (1) then took the two cash tills and passed them to the second suspect. They both exited the eating establishment and left in a white Volkswagen Golf. CCTV footage from Dublin Bus shows their vehicle being involved in a collision at a roundabout at the junction of the Nangor Road and Fonthill Road. The two males left the car and ran towards the Bawnogue area, and then Alpine Heights estate, Clondalkin. One of the suspects dropped one of the tills at a green area in the Alpine Heights estate which was subsequently recovered by Gardaí. The second till remains outstanding.
