A man in his 40s is due in court this afternoon after a woman was allegedly held hostage in a house in Dublin.

Gardaí were called to a house in Ballyogan Green, Dublin 18, at approximately 11:20am yesterday morning, due to a disturbance.

A Defence Forces bomb disposal team was requested as a precaution.

A woman in her 30s was held hostage in the house by a man. After a short period of time, the woman left the house unharmed.

After constant contact with negotiators, the man left the house at about 3:30pm.

He was taken to hospital for treatment, and subsequently charged by Gardai.

A replica firearm was recovered in the building.
