MAN ROBS SHOP OF CASH ARMED WITH PAIR OF SCISSORS


DETECTIVES are investigating an armed robbery at commercial premises on the Woodstock Road in east Belfast yesterday evening, Saturday 16 February.

Police received a report that at around 8.20pm a man had entered a shop armed with a pair of scissors.

He threatened a customer with the scissors and demanded money from staff.

He made off with a sum of cash from the till.  He is described as being aged in his late 20s or early 30s, approximately 5’8” tall and of slim build.

The robber was wearing a blue hooded top and grey track bottoms and had a black scarf covering his face.

The suspect was reported to have been in the company of a pregnant female earlier in the evening.

She is described as being approximately 5’4” tall with blonde hair tied back.  She was wearing a cream coloured coat and pink scarf.

Detective Sergeant McCallum is appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time and who saw a man matching the description of the suspect, or anyone who knows anything about the incident to contact detectives in Musgrave on 101, quoting reference number 1296 16/02/19.

Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.
