A female staff member has been left badly shaken following a robbery at a bookmakers in Londonderry.

The robbery happened after two men entered the bookmakers in the Central Drive area of the city just before 5.45pm.

One of the men pushed a female member of staff to the ground and restrained her while the other man searched the premises.

The two suspects then fled with cash.

PSNI detective sergeant Marshall said: “This was a terrifying experience for the victim who, while physically uninjured, has understandably been left badly shaken.

“One of the suspects is described as being approximately 5’ 11” in height, wearing a balaclava, black clothing and gloves.  The second is also described as wearing dark clothing and gloves."

Police have appealed for anyone with any information about the robbery to contact them on 101, quoting reference 1855 of 01/01/20.

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