At around 10.45am as a man was walking through the pedestrian tunnel below the Belmont Road near Cunningham Way he was approached by two males, one armed with a screwdriver, who demanded his rucksack.
The blue coloured rucksack containing a Dell lap top computer, a Canon EOS6d camera and lens and a Samsung S5 mobile phone was handed over and the two males then ran off in the direction of the Weir.
The first male was described as being in his late 20’s, around 5’8″ tall of slim build with short shaven fair hair. He was wearing a red jacket and blue jeans.
The second male was described as being mid 20’s, slightly shorter than his accomplice, of slim build with short brown hair. He was wearing a navy coloured zip up hooded top and blue jeans.
