Two men have robbed a commercial business at Fitzroy Avenue after threatening bystanders with a screwdriver.

The men pushed a female staff member and demanded that she hand over the money.

After hearing the woman scream, a number of people tried to catch them.

One of the men threatened everyone with a screwdriver, but no one was injured. The men drove off in a car thought to be a Toyota Avensis.

The robbery took place at 11.30pm on September 29 and Detective Inspector Michelle Griffin has urged witnesses to come forward.

He said: “I would appeal to anyone who has any information about this incident to contact Detectives at Reactive and Organised Crime, Musgrave PSNI Station on the non-emergency number 101, or if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
