Detective Sergeant David Stewart says, “We received a report of a robbery at a shop in the Duke Street area of the town around 6.30 pm. 



“The shop was empty when the suspect entered through an open door, brandishing a knife and shouting that he wanted money. 

“Two women were working in the shop at the time.

“And one of them handed over cash to him while he continued to threaten her with the knife.

“He then fled the premises.



“While the two women were physically unharmed during the incident, it was a frightening experience for them both,” he continues.

Police are very keen to hear from anyone who may have seen the male suspect in the Duke Street area between 6 pm and 6.30 pm on Friday 16 July 2021.

Detective Sergeant Stewart continues, “Were you in this area on Friday evening, either immediately before or after the robbery took place?



“Did you see anything suspicious or unusual – or did you notice the suspect? 

“He is described as being 5’ 11” in height and of slim build, wearing a grey jacket with the hood up over his face and black tracksuit bottoms. 

“He was also said to have been wearing a peaked cap and had facial stubble.
