Staff at the Mace shop on the Castletown road have been left "traumatized" after a knife-wielding thug held the service station up last night. 

Dundalk gardai revealed that a lone man entered the busy shop between 8.30 and 9pm last night demanding cash from the till and threatening staff with a knife.

Gardai say the man fled the scene on foot with a sum of cash. 

Nobody has been arrested in relation to the crime yet. 

Gardai are appealing to anyone who might have been in the area between 8.30 and 9pm last night and might have seen the man to get in touch on 042 93 88400.
