Man due in court over attempted robbery

A man in his late 20s is expected to appear before a sitting of Letterkenny District Court this morning following an attempted robbery in Newtowncunningham.

On the 29th November 2019 at approximately 11.45am a lone male entered a convenience store in Newtowncunningham. He threatened a staff member at knife point before leaving the store on foot empty handed. It’s understood the staff member was not physically harmed during the incident.

A spokesperson for the Gardai said: “The alarm was raised and a Garda unit on covert patrol in the area at the time arrested a man in 20s who was near the scene a short time later. He was taken to Letterkenny Garda Station and detained for questioning under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984. The investigation is ongoing.”
