By Staff Reporter

Police are appealing after two men armed with a hammer and knife threatened staff and demanded money from a shop in west Belfast.

It happened at Suffolk Road on Saturday at around 7.45pm.      

They made off with a sum of cash, along with a third man who was waiting outside, citywards on Glen Road in the direction of Lenadoon. They are described as being in their late teens.

The male with the hammer was wearing a black North Face jacket with a grey hooded top underneath, navy bobble hat with grey bobble and neon orange stripe around the turn-up, dark bottoms and trainers.

The male with the knife was wearing a bright blue woollen hat with a red square logo on the front, dark grey jacket or hooded-top zipped up over his face, light grey jogging bottoms and dark trainers with a white sole. The third was wearing a grey/black jacket, dark beanie hat, dark bottoms and light grey trainers.
