Armed thief targets Derry takeaways

An armed and masked man has broken in to two parked vehicles and two restaurants.

At around 7.20pm on Monday evening it was reported that a masked man broke in to two vehicles parked in the Lenamore Road area of Londonderry.

The male left the area in another vehicle. Shortly before 7.40pm it was reported a man had damaged the front window of a fast food takeaway with a hammer in the Culmore Road area.

It was also reported that the male then entered another takeaway restaurant in the area where a member of staff was threatened but was not harmed.

A sum of money was taken during the incident. The thief then left the scene in a car driven by another man in the Shantallow area road direction.
