Police are hunting a woman with missing front teeth wearing a wedding style hat, black sunglasses and floral and leather gloves after a Belfast knifepoint robbery.

At around 11.40am on Tuesday a woman entered the premises on the Gilnahirk Road. She started a conversation with a female shop assistant before producing a knife and demanding money from the safe.

She made off on foot in a countrywards direction with a sum of cash.

The shop assistant describes the robber as aged in her 50s or 60s, 5ft 7 inches tall, of medium build with missing upper front teeth.

She was wearing a black wide-rimmed ‘wedding’ style hat, black sunglasses, a black short sleeved blouse with a white floral pattern and black leather gloves.

Detective Sergeant Nigel Snoddy said: "The description is distinctive and we are hoping that witnesses will have noticed this woman in the area. Information can be given to detectives by calling the non-emergency number 101.

"Alternatively information can be given to the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
