PSNI release CCTV stills of two men linked to attempted robberies in Belfast
Police have released CCTV stills of two men they wish to speak to in connection with two attempted armed robberies in Belfast.
At around 8.40pm on Tuesday February 4 2015, staff at a bookmakers on Shaws Road reported a robbery in progress.
Two armed males entered the premises and demanded money but fled empty handed.
A short time later, at around 9.10pm, two males armed with a hammer and a firearm entered a bookmakers on Andersonstown Road.
They demanded money, threatening a member of staff with the gun, before making off - nothing was taken.
Detective Sergeant Stephen Harvey said: “At this time we believe the same individuals were involved in both incidents.
"We would like to speak to the males featured in the CCTV stills as we believe they may be able to assist us with our enquiries. Anyone who can identify either of the men is asked to contact Belfast Reactive and Organised Crime on the non-emergency number 101.
"If someone would prefer to provide information without giving their name, they can contact the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
