Hammer raid on Belfast supermarket

Detectives in south Belfast are appealing for information after a supermarket was robbed by men armed with a hammer.

The robbery happened at the store in Cromac Place at around 5.15pm on Thursday.

The PSNI said two men entered the premises, one armed with what is believed to be a hammer. A member of staff was threatened before the men made off with cash and a quantity of cigarettes.

The two males are described as being in their late teens and both were wearing hooded tops.

They made off in the direction of McAuley Street.
