Two men have escaped with a sum of cash after robbing a Derry shop at knifepoint.

Police say the two men carried out the robbery at commercial premises at Glenowen Park at around 5:50pm on Monday evening (September 9).

“At approximately 5.50pm two males, one of whom was armed with a knife, entered a shop and demanded that members of staff hand over money. The two males then left on foot with a sum of money,” a PSNI spokeswoman said.

It is understood two female members of staff were left very badly shaken during the incident.

Police have asked anyone who may have witnessed anyone acting suspiciously in the area or who has any information to contact them at Strand Road on 0845 600 8000. 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.
