Police say the thieves made off with a quantity of cigarettes and cash.

PSNI Detectives are appealing for information following the report of a robbery at commercial premises in the Sandy Row area of Belfast on Saturday evening.

At approximately 6.45pm two males, armed with knives entered the premises.

 One of the men jumped across the counter and stole a quantity of cigarettes and money from the till, whilst the second male stood guard at the door.

No one was injured during this incident, however staff working in the premises have been left very badly shaken.

Detective Sergeant Keith Wilson would ask anyone who may have witnessed this incident or who has any information about it to contact Detectives at Reactive and Organised Crime at Musgrave 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.
