A masked man armed with a machete type knife has robbed a fast food restaurant in Newtownabbey.

An elderly woman was pushed over during the incident and received medical treatment for severe shock.

Just before 5pm on Tuesday evening he entered the restaurant in the Church Road area of Co Antrim.

He jumped over the counter and took the drawer from the till.

The till drawer was dropped inside the premises as he made off empty-handed and ran towards the Rathcoole estate.

The man is described as being in his 20s, of slim build and wearing dark clothing and a mask.

Detective Inspector David Skelly has appealed for anyone who witnessed the incident or who has any information to contact CID in Newtownabbey on 101.
