Gardai are investigating a carjacking last night in Dublin in which an SUV was stolen with a child in the back seat.
The ordeal began at around 11.15 last night just outside in the Phoenix Park.
An SUV was at the gate on Conyngham Road when the driver was approached by a man armed with a knife.
A man and woman were pulled from the car which drove away with a 1 year-old child in the back seat.
It stopped a short distance away and the attacker ordered the couple to take the child out of the car.
Gardai are still searching for the vehicle which hasn't been found.
It's described as a grey Nissan Qashqai with a partial reg of 181 WX.
It's not known what direction it took on Conyngham Road. Anyone who may have seen it is asked to contact detectives at Kevin Street Garda Station.
