Police are appealing for information

Police have appealed for information after a delivery driver was robbed at gunpoint in Armagh on Monday.

The incident took place on the Elm Park Road area of Kilylea at around 5.20pm.

Police believe that when the delivery driver stopped his van, a blue car pulled up alongside him.

A handgun was then pointed at the driver and he was ordered to open the rear of the van.

Two men wearing balaclavas then removed the van's contents.

They loaded the items, which were parcels, into their car and made off, also taking the driver’s mobile.

Chief Inspector Tim Flanigan appealed for any witnesses to come forward.

“This happened at a time of the evening when people would have been going about their everyday business," he said

"I am appealing to anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity, or who may have captured dash cam footage, to contact us on 101 quoting reference number 1558 of 23/12/19.

“Information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
