Detectives are appealing for information and witnesses in relation to a report of a robbery in Coleraine in the early hours of this morning, Saturday 25th May.

Detective Sergeant McDowell said: “Shortly after 2.30am, it was reported that a man was walking in the Diamond area of the town when he was grabbed from behind by a number of males, and something was placed over his head.

“The suspects were then reported to have held a knife to his neck and demanded that he hand over money, before pushing him to the ground and striking him.

“They then fled with his wallet, which contained cash, bank cards, and other items, in the direction of Hanover Place.

“The victim was reported to be left very shaken by the incident, and our enquires are ongoing to establish the circumstances of this incident.

“I would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time and witnessed what happened, or who has any information which might assist, to get in touch with detectives on 101, and quote reference number 157 of 25/05/24.”
