A shop assistant has been held at knife point during a robbery in south Belfast, police have said.

Two men, one armed with a knife, entered the premises on the Lisburn Road shortly after 1pm on Saturday.

One of the men demanded that the assistant hand over money, which was put into a plastic bag.

The man with the knife is described as being approximately 5ft 8ins tall, of medium build and was wearing a black hooded jacket, blue checked face scarf and blue jeans.

He appeared to have a tanned complexion and short grey hair with some grey facial hair growth and spoke with a local accent.

The second man is described as wearing a two-toned hooded top, grey/black in colour, with blue tracksuit bottoms and white trainers. It is believed the two men then made off in a silver coloured Mondeo car.

Detective Sergeant Dolores Black said: "I would appeal to anyone who noticed any suspicious activity in the area to contact detectives at Musgrave on the non-emergency number 101."
