Police hunt man after armed raid

Detectives are hunting an armed raider who left workers shaken during a robbery at a shop in Northern Ireland.

The masked man held up a convenience store in Dungiven, Co Derry, at around 10:30pm on Saturday night.

It is believed he was armed with a gun and a hammer.

The attacker demanded money from the staff and made off with a sum of cash.

Investigators said the shop workers were not injured during the ordeal but were left shaken.

The robber is described as being in his early 30s, approximately 5ft 7in and of medium build.

He was wearing a balaclava, blue jeans, black trainers, gloves and a navy hooded top with the letters "DSL" in red and white.

Detectives have appealed for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.
