Police in Antrim are appealing for information following the report of a robbery in the Belmont Road area on Wednesday, May 28.

At around 10.45am, as a man was walking through the pedestrian tunnel below the Belmont Road near Cunningham Way he was approached by two males, one armed with a screwdriver, who demanded his rucksack.

The blue coloured rucksack containing a Dell lap top computer, a Canon EOS6d camera and lens and a Samsung S5 mobile phone was handed over and the two males then ran off in the direction of the Weir.

The first male was described as being in his late 20s, around 5’8” tall of slim build with short shaven fair hair. He was wearing a red jacket and blue jeans.

The second male was described as being mid 20s, slightly shorter than his accomplice, of slim build with short brown hair. He was wearing a navy coloured zip up hooded top and blue jeans.

Police would ask anyone who witnessed this incident or who has any information to contact them in Antrim on the non-emergency number 101. 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
