A man has been arrested following a number of violent incidents in Tallaght.

It’s understood the suspect then made his way into the Watergate housing estate in Tallaght where he broke into a house. He punched a man with the end of what appeared to be a machine gun and stole his car.
The same suspect is then believed to have stolen two more cars on the Naas road before Gardai spotted him heading into the Citywest Shopping Centre. The suspect jumped out of a car and a foot chase ensued across the shopping centre’s car park.
The man was eventually arrested and has been brought to Tallaght Garda Station for questioning. A firearm has also been recovered.
