A Letterkenny takeaway worker had a knife held to her face as two men robbed her on Monday evening.
Margo Harkin was working at the Hot Plate beside the Swilly Inn takeaway in Gortlee when two men burst in.
The men padded her down before demanding to know where the cash was.
They eventually got away with a small sum of cash.
Ms Harkin was left unhurt but said she was terrified after the incident.
Gardai have launched a full investigation into the robbery and are studying CCTV footage in the area.
