One man has been arrested after he pulled out what appeared to be a fake gun on a Dublin DART this afternoon. 

The train in question was travelling from Connolly to Tara Street at around 3pm today. Allegedly, the man took out the imitation weapon and pointed it at another passenger.

Customers on the DART carriage raised the alarm, stopping the train at Tara Street Station where armed members of An Garda Síochána were waiting for his arrest.

A man in his 40s has since been arrested and brought to Pearse Street Garda Station for questioning.
