Gardaí are appealing for witnesses following an attempted robbery of a woman in her 70s.

The crime occurred in Sandymount at a bus stop on Newgrove Avenue shortly before 7pm last night.

The elderly lady was approached by a lone male who, following a struggle to get her handbag, made off with nothing.

The man is thought to have been in his early 20s.

The woman sustained a number of injuries in the struggle and was taken to St Vincents Hospital for treatment.

Her injuries are not life threatening.

Gardaí in Irishtown are keen to speak to anyone who may have been at the bus stop on Newgrove Avenue last night.

Anyone with any information to contact Irishtown Garda Station 01 6669600, The Confidential Line 1 800 666 111 or any Garda Station.


Gardaí are currently investigating an armed robbery which took place at a Centra store on the UCD campus earlier this week.

According to reports, a female employee and her male colleague were held at gunpoint after two armed raiders entered the store at approximately 10pm on Wednesday night.

The two employees were threatened and forced to hand over a sum of cash before being tied up by the raiders.

It is understood the raiders, who brandished an iron bar and a hand gun, made off across the Belfield campus, leaving the two employees shaken but uninjured.

Gardai have confirmed that an investigation into the robbery has been launched.



"At this point we don't know what their motive was," so said police spokesperson, Martin Ahlick, when referring to the theft of a vehicle carrying 22 tonnes of Nutella, and a variety of Kinder products.

Forgive us for being glib, but dare we say it might have been the contents of the truck that motivated the opportunistic thieves in the German town of Neustadt in Hesse in recent weeks.

Well, that's what our motivation would have been, anyway. (Sorry, not sorry.)

According to reports, police in Neustadt, which is 120km northeast of Frankfurt, are currently investigating the robbery which resulted in the loss of €70,000 worth of sweet, sweet chocolate. Oh, and the truck, of course.

Addressing the potential motive, Ahlick admitted the force are not yet certain, saying: "It's not even clear if they were after the sweets or the trailer."

Urging the public to be vigilant in the wake of the confectionary heist, he added: "Anyone offered large quantities of chocolate via unconventional channels should report it to the police immediately."

You heard the man, ladies.



The printed and purchasable Harry Potter series is amazing enough, so we can't imagine how powerful and riveting a rare, short-story prequel of the series is.

Such a prequel, handwritten by author J.K. Rowling on a postcard, has been stolen during a burglary in England.

Police are appealing for help from muggles to locate the stolen story.

'The only people who will buy this unique piece are true Harry Potter fans,' said Investigating Officer PC Paul Jauncey.

'We are appealing to anyone who sees, or is offered this item for sale to contact police.'

JK Rowling has also taken to Twitter to ask Harry Potter fans to be on the lookout for the 800-word story, which is set three years before Harry Potter is born.

'Please don't buy this if you're offered it,' tweeted the author.

The short story sold at a charity auction in 2008 for €30,000. 

'Originally auctioned for @englishpen, the owner supported writers' freedoms by bidding for it,' she said. 


Kim Kardashian has finally made a triumphant return to social media after she was robbed in an armed heist at a luxury apartment in Paris.

Just days after the selfie queen's comeback, top supermodel Naomi Campbell has spoken out to revel that she has also been targeted by thieves in Paris in the past.

Speaking on The Wendy Williams Show yesterday, the catwalk veteran told the audience that she was attacked by an organised crime ring in 2012.

The star said that from the moment she was picked up from the airport, something felt off. 

The driver who collected her was acting suspiciously, and kept all of the car windows down for the entire drive despite the freezing November temperatures.

When she arrived at her destination, the Azzedine Alaïa store which doubles up as the designer's home, things got violent.

"They followed me from the airport, they attacked me. They opened my car door and said, ‘Naomi Campbell, we’re going to kill you.’" she told the talk show host. 

"I didn’t make it so public. I didn’t want it to be. I think there’s a picture of me in a wheelchair at the time."

Luckily, store workers saw the violent events unfolding and rushed out to help the supermodel.

"In the interim, you decide in a very split moment – I don’t know if I’d ever do this again in hindsight – ‘Am I going to let this guy take my bag with all my passports or am I going to fight for it?," she said.

"My decision was, ‘I am not letting my bag go.’"

"The driver was in on it. It’s a whole ring that’s been happening for a few years now,” she continued.

When asked about Kim Kardashians experiences, the The Face host replied: 

"I very much sympathize. I felt for her right away. I hated hearing these stories that it wasn't true. It was absolutely true, and it happened to me and it’s happened to a few other people that I’m not at liberty to say, but are well known also."

The thieves who robbed Kim Kardashian are still at large. 


As an increasing number of sources confirm that she is struggling to cope after her armed robbery ordeal, Kim Kardashian West has made a fleeting return to social media.

The reality star – who was bound and gagged in a luxury apartment during Paris Fashion Week – has reportedly logged into Twitter to unfollow 13 people.

According to The Sun, the mother of two’s fans began to share encouraging messages with her as she reduced her “following” list to 108 people.

The peculiar move comes as insiders claim the 35-year-old remains “paranoid” after the attack which saw her lose $10 million worth of jewellery.

While Kim continues to keep a low profile, yesterday TMZ reported that she has filed a lawsuit against a media outlet who suggested she had lied about aspects of the robbery.  


Khloe Kardashian has spoken publicly for the first time about the traumatic armed robbery which saw her sister Kim bound and gagged in a Parisian apartment.

Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today, the blonde reality star revealed that Kim “is not doing well” after the high profile attack.

She explained to the show’s host and fellow guest Kevin Hart: “It’s incredibly traumatic what happened to her, but our family is super close and great and we’ll get through it together, and we do appreciate all of your guys’ love and support and it will take time.”

When asked by Ellen if the experience has made the family wary of their huge social media following, Khloe replied: “Well, I think it's just a wake up call to make a lot of life adjustments.”

“This is a really serious matter for Kim I think that’s really personal as to when that emotional terror you could move on from that.”

“We're a family we’ll do this together.  I think it’s important to make those adjustments and to pull back a little bit, I think is always smart,” she continued.


"You can't sit with us!" ok ladies! I see you!! Okkkkuuuuurrrrr

After expressing his admiration for the Kardashian-Jenners’ family orientated attitude, Kevin then redirected the conversation towards Rob Kardashian and his on-off partner Blac Chyna.

Ellen questioned Khloe about the recent baby shower dispute which led Rob to allegedly leak his youngest sister Kylie’s number online.

The 32-year-old Kardashian explained: “There were two baby showers and Chyna was invited to both of them.  But we wanted to have a DILF shower…that was supposed to be all for the guys.”

She said that the so-called “DILF shower” was supposed to be a surprise party for Rob which Chyna knew about but Rob did not.

Eventually Rob failed to turn up to the shower which led to a row between the expecting couple.



Enda Kenny has suggested that Kim Kardashian would not have been robbed if she had been staying in Ireland at the time of her attack.

Speaking at the announcement of 85 new jobs at Carlow security firm Netwatch today, the Taoiseach made light of the attack which saw the mother of two bound and gagged while armed raiders stole over €10 million worth of jewellery from her luxury Parisian apartment.

The leader of our country said: “There was a good lady robbed in Paris the other day of jewellery.  Maybe if they had employed Netwatch they mightn’t have been robbed at all.”

“Send her a message and say ‘over here we’ll mind you,’” he joked.

Irish Twitter users have already taken to the site to discuss the comments.

One commentator wrote: “Did @EndaKennyTD really just make a joke about @KimKardashian being tied up, threatened with violence and robbed?  Uh…”

While another said: “Of all the things Enda Kenny has ever said, telling Kim Kardashian to hire an Irish security firm was certainly one of them.”

Kanye West has rescheduled two of his upcoming Saint Pablo concerts after his wife, Kim Kardashian, was held at gunpoint in Paris.

According to a statement from Live Nation, the rapper’s Philadelphia and Detroit shows – which were originally scheduled for this week – have been pushed back until December because of “family concerns”.

As reported by Rolling Stone, the father of two will recommence his tour in Chicago this Friday.

Yesterday, the Famous hit-maker left his New York concert mid-show to be with his wife when she landed in the city just hours after a group of armed robbers dressed in police uniform attacked her in a luxury Parisian apartment.

While full details of the robbery have yet to emerge, early reports suggest the reality star was left begging for her life as the gang tied her up and made off with millions of dollars worth of jewellery.



In a shocking incident that understandably left her "badly shaken," Kim Kardashian was this morning ambushed by armed men at the luxurious Parisian apartment where she was staying for Fashion Week.  

Located on the prestigious 7 Rue Tronchet in the chic 8th arrondissement, the reality TV star was subjected to the raid at around 2am – reportedly being tied up in the bathroom while the thieves made off with €10m worth of jewellery. 

Local media in France furthermore says that two mobile phones containing "personal information," as well as cash totaling €1,000 and a designer handbag were all taken. 

Now, images of the apartment where the attack took place have begun to emerge. 

Favoured by the likes of the Mick Jagger, Leonardo Di Caprio, Madonna and Prince, the property boasts a total of nine high-end short-term stay homes and is branded as 'Hôtel Partiulier'. However, such is its uber-exclusive status that it doesn't have a website or publicly-available contact details. 

Costing around €26,500 a month, according to thesun.co.ukTMZ.com says that during the robbery Kim begged the men for her life and told them she had two young children.

Paris police said it is employing "all possible means to solve the case and arrest the perpetrators". The inquiry is being handled by the serious crimes unit, la brigade de répression du banditisme, and the Paris judicial police.

After assisting them with their investigation, Kim herself has now returned to the US to be with her husband, Kanye West, and children North, 3, and Saint, ten months. 



Virginia-born rapper Chris Brown was the target of a robbery earlier this morning. 

His Los Angeles house was hit early on Wednesday at around 2am local time by a group of robbers who invaded his property and held his aunt at gun point. 

The group then locked his aunt in a closet in the home while they rooted through the entire house looking for valuables. 

The incident took place in the new home Chris recently bough in swish San Fernando Valley area although he was not in the house at the time.

According to TMZ, three armed men entered the house and put a gun to Chris's aunts face and forced her into the wardrobe. According to police, they took money and other items of value from the house before fleeing. 

The aunt called emergency services as soon as she could but by the time someone arrived, the men had fleed.

This state of the art home is worth almost €5m, and Chris has recently been showing it off on Instagram. 


The first day of the rest of my life!
