A man armed with a knife and a gun has robbed an off-licence in north Belfast.

The incident occurred at around 10.40pm on Saturday evening in the Oldpark Road area.

Detective Sergeant Conlan said: “We received a report that a man armed with a knife and gun entered an off-licence in the area at around 10.40pm.  He subsequently made off with a sum of money and a quantity of alcohol.

"There were no reports of any injuries; however, this must have been a frightening ordeal for staff.

“It’s believed that there may have been two other males waiting outside the premises, and that the three headed off, on foot, towards Ardoyne.

"I am appealing to anyone who has information, or who noticed any suspicious activity in the area around that time, to contact detectives on 101, quoting reference number 2029 of 01/06/19.”

Information can also be passed anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
