Knifepoint robbery on Derry Peace Bridge

A woman has been robbed at knifepoint on the Peace Bridge in Londonderry.

The victim was walking towards the Waterside on Tuesday night, at about 8.25pm, when she was approached from behind by a man armed with a knife.

He made off with her handbag and ran towards Foyle Street, where he is believed to have got into a taxi which dropped him off at Great James Street.

The woman was uninjured, but left badly shaken by her ordeal.

The armed robber is believed to have been wearing a blue tracksuit top at the time of the incident.

Detectives at Strand Road are appealing for information, particularly from anyone who saw a man acting suspiciously in the area.
