18 Nov 2012

Detectives in Downpatrick are appealing for information following an armed robbery in the Drumaness Road area of Ballynahinch on the evening of Saturday 17 November.

At approximately 9pm, a young male armed with a knife entered an off licence. He took two bottles of wine and demanded money from the till.

The male is described as being in his mid to late teens, approximately 5'6" tall and of a very slim build. He was wearing a black jacket, grey hooded top and dark coloured tracksuit bottoms.
