Gardai are investigating the robbery of a cash box by a man on a bicycle from security company personnel doing their delivery rounds.

Gardai have launched an investigation into the robbery of a cash from a security company crew by a man on a bicycle.

The raider cycled up to the victim and demanded money before cycling away with it.

It was unclear how much money was stolen but the cash was taken from a cash in transit crew; which collect and deliver cash for banks, other businesses and to service ATMs.

The robbery occurred on Tuesday afternoon when the cyclist escaped with a cash box in north Dublin.

The security crew was making its rounds in Beaumont when the raider cycled up to one crew member who was carrying a cash box.

The man on the bike made threats and demanded the money, which was handed over in the cash box.

And the raider then cycled off with the unspecified sum of money.

“Gardaí are investigating a Cash in Transit robbery that occurred Tuesday, May 7th,” the Garda said in a statement.

“At approximately 2.00pm a cash in transit van was making a delivery to a premises on the Beaumont Road, Dublin 9, when one man on a push bike, approached the security guard demanding cash.
