STAFF and customers at a shop have been threatened with scissors and a razor during a robbery.

Two men entered the premises on Ormeau Road in south Belfast shortly before 10pm last night.

Detective Sergeant Keith Wilson said they stole cash from the till "along with a large quantity of cigarettes before making of on foot".

"It is believed that there was possibly a third male with them who did not enter the shop."

PSNI could not give any more details of the location of the shop, but have asked anyone who may have witnessed the robbery or have "information in relation to those involved" to contact detectives on 101 quoting reference 1873 of 24/10/21.
