Staff at a fast food takeaway in west Belfast have been threatened by two men armed with a knife.

The attempted robbery happened on the Whiterock Road on Saturday January 7.

It was reported to police that two men, one armed with a knife, entered the premises at around 10.20pm, threatened staff members and demanded money.

No money was handed over however, and the two males made off from the scene on foot.

"I would appeal for anyone with any information to contact detectives at Musgrave on 101 quoting reference number 1215 07/01/17. Information can also be given anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
