Detectives are investigating the robbery at a shop in north Belfast and have appealed for information.
Detective Sergeant Natalie Moore said: “We received a report at 9:15am this morning (Monday, 27th July) that a male had entered commercial premises on New Lodge Road last night (Sunday, 26th July), at around 8.30pm, armed with some sort of weapon.
“The male is reported to have pushed a female staff member to the ground before making off with a sum of money. It is believed the male joined a second male outside the shop, and made off towards Carlisle Circus.
“This was a very distressing ordeal with the staff member.
