Police have appealed for information

Two masked men stole a sum of money from a Ballymena takeaway in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Police in Ballymena are appealing for information about the robbery, with one of the men reported to have been armed with a large knife.

The men entered the takeaway in the Crebilly Road area and demanded money. They then fled on foot with a sum of money.

The suspect who was armed is described as having worn navy tracksuit bottoms and a hooded top with a white stripe.

The second suspect is described as having worn a blue-coloured hoodie and navy-coloured trousers, possibly jeans.

Detective Sergeant Coulter said that while there were no reports of any injuries it had been a "frightening ordeal for staff".

"I want to appeal to anyone who was in the area just prior to, or after midnight, and saw two males matching the description of the suspects or who has information which may assist our investigation to call us on the non emergency number 101, quoting reference number 3 of 19/05/19.

"Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime."
