Armed robbers threaten workers on Crumlin Road

Staff at two filling stations have been threatened during armed robberies in Belfast.

In the first incident, two men– one carrying a knife, the other carrying a baton– entered premises on the Crumlin Road shortly before 6.45pm on Friday, before escaping with cash.

The men made off on foot along the Crumlin Road in the direction of Cliftonpark Avenue.

One of the men wore a yellow top and grey track bottoms, while the other wore a black jacket and blue track bottoms.

In a separate incident later that night, a man carrying an iron bar robbed a filling station on the Shankill Road at 9.50pm.

The man made off on foot, with cash, in the direction of Crosby Street, where a second man was waiting for him.

The armed man is described as being 5ft 10in, and in his late teens or early 20s. He was wearing a white and grey top and blue track bottoms.

Police are appealing for witnesses to contact them on 0845 600 8000.
