Two masked men have threatened a shop worker with knives during an armed robbery at a shop on Drumenny Road in Cookstown.

It happened shortly after 10pm on Friday night.

Detective Constable Glasgow said: "Shortly after 10:10pm, it was reported that as a member of staff was closing the shop, two men with their faces covered approached the property.  Both men were armed with knives and demanded money from the staff member. The men then made off with a sum of money, leaving the staff member uninjured but badly shaken.

"The  men are described as being around 5”10 in height, medium build  and wearing dark clothing.

"Enquiries are continuing and we would appeal to anyone with who witnessed anything suspicious in the area to contact detectives on 101, quoting reference number 1966 15/11/19. 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."
