A teenager is due before Limerick district court this Friday morning charged in connection with robbing three students in the city centre.

The 18 year old approached the students on Roches street Thursday night and held them at knifepoint, demanding money and mobile phones to be handed over. Gardai were quickly on the scene and arrested the man a short time later. On him they found three phones, money and a wallet.

In a separate incident Gardai are investigating an arson attack on a viewing platform at the wetlands on Thursday morning. Over 3,000 worth of damage was caused to the platform just off the condell road when it was set on fire during the night.
