Detectives are appealing for information following a robbery at a shop in the Garvagh Road area of Kilrea that occurred on the evening of Saturday 28 January.

At approximately 10.15pm a man entered the shop armed with a screwdriver and demanded money. He made off with a sum of cash and walked in the direction of an alleyway which leads to Beechview Gardens.

The man is described as being about 5’10” tall, of slim build and was wearing latex gloves, a balaclava, a hat, a black hooded top and dirty blue jeans.

Detective Sergeant Kelly Gallagher said: “I would ask anyone who knows anything about this incident to contact detectives at Coleraine Police Station on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 1289 of 28/01/17. Or if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details, they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
