Two service station workers have been left traumatised after an armed robbery on the Antrim Road in Belfast.

It happened at around 10pm on Friday evening, when a man who was armed with a knife entered the shop.

The staff members tried to escape after he demanded they open the till.

The suspect grabbed one of them by the arm, leaving a mark, but managed to leave the premises.

Police said the suspect remained in the store and stole a sum of cash before leaving.

Detective Sergeant Natalie Moore appealed to anyone who noticed the man either before or after the incident to contact detectives at Musgrave on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 2275 14/08/20, or submit a report online using our non-emergency reporting form via http://www.psni.police.uk/makeareport/.
