Detectives are investigating an armed robbery at a service station in Keady last night, Tuesday 11 October.

Shortly before 7.30pm two men wearing balaclavas and armed with a handgun and wheelbrace entered the store on Castleblayney Road. They threatened a teenage girl who was working there and demanded money. The pair then made off from the scene with a sum of cash in a dark coloured Mercedes car in the direction of Castleblayney.

One of the suspects was described as a Superdry hoody and blue jeans. The second was wearing a dark coloured jacket.

The staff member was left shaken but wasn’t physically injured.
