The PSNI are appealing for witnesses after an expensive watch was stolen at knifepoint in west Belfast.

The incident happened in the Springfield Road area of the city at around 3am on Sunday February 18.

Police responded to the call and carried out searches in the area based on the appearance of the two suspects.

Inspector McCullough said: “We would be keen to speak to two men, both believed to be in their 20s and Middle Eastern in appearance, who were in the area at the time and may have information that could help with our investigation.

“One is described as very slim build, 5’8”, wearing a navy top with what is believed to be the word ‘Hollister’ down the arm, dark trousers and a Hermes belt with a large ‘H’ on the buckle, with facial stubble with his hair shaved at the sides and longer on top.

"He is reported to have run off, carrying a knife, towards the Cavendish Street area. The other man is described as being 5’7” in height, of muscular build, wearing black trousers, grey tee-shirt and with dark hair.

“We would like to hear from anyone who saw this incident taking place or who knows anything about it. Please contact us on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 231 of 18/2/18."

Members of the public can alternatively contact independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
