Gardaí are appealing for information following a cash-in-transit robbery at a shopping centre in Dublin.

At around 11.30am a man, believed to be armed with a firearm, held up a security guard outside Castleknock Shopping Centre.

The raider took a cash box and escaped in a black Ford Mondeo.

Two men then abandoned the car and escaped on foot, scaling a wall at the back of the shopping centre.

Officers are appealing for information or sightings of the two suspects or the black car.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Blanchardstown Garda Station on 01-6667000 or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800-666-111.
