Man charged in connection with robbery in Limerick city

A MAN arrested in connection with a robbery in Limerick city has been charged and will appear in court this Tuesday morning.

Shortly before midnight on August 27, a woman was walking through Delmege Park in Moyross when a man approached her from behind, struck her in the face and stole her handbag.

The woman did not require medical attention following the incident.  

Gardaí from Mayorstone Park attended and carried out a patrol of the area but no arrests were made.

Following an investigation by Detectives from the Crime Office in Mayorstone Park, a search warrant was executed at a house in County Clare on the evening of September 6.  

A man, aged in his 20s, was arrested and brought to Henry Street Garda Station where he is currently detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.
