GARDAÍ have arrested and charged a man in relation to an attempted robbery in Cork city.
On Sunday, shortly before 6pm a man entered an off-licence on Douglas Street, armed with what is believed to be a syringe, threatened staff and left empty-handed.
Detective Gardaí from Anglesea Street attended and carried out a patrol of the area but a suspect was not located.
The scene was examined by the local Scenes of Crime Unit and CCTV was gathered from the area.
As a result of the initial enquiries a man, aged in his 20s, was arrested yesterday morning.
He was detained at Mayfield Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984 and has since been charged.
He is due to appear before Cork City District Court this morning at 10.30am.
