POLICE have released footage of a man they believe robbed a shop in Belfast city centre earlier this year.

Detective Inspector Tom Phillips said the theft happened on Wednesday February 26 when "shortly after 6pm a man entered the shop, approached the till, and took out a sum of money before making off on foot towards Royal Avenue".

"He was described as being of slim build, aged in his late 20s and was wearing a green zipped up jacket, blue jeans and a woollen hat.

"We have conducted extensive enquiries into the incident and are releasing this footage today to hopefully take our investigation further. If you recognise the individual from the footage or have any information which could assist us with our enquiries I would ask you to contact detectives at Musgrave on 101 quoting reference number 1509 26/02/20."
