Detectives in Derry are appealing for information following a report of a robbery at business premises in the Pennyburn Industrial Estate in Derry last night.

It was reported to police at around 11.40pm that a masked man pushed his way into the premises and, following a struggle with a female member of staff, made off with a cash box containing a sum of cash. He made off in a red coloured car that was being driven by a second man. The member of staff was not injured but left shaken by the incident.

A spokesperson said: “Police would ask anyone who witnessed this incident or who has any information to contact CID in 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.”
