At around 5.30pm a man armed with a knife entered the convenience store on the New Lodge Road and demanded money.

Staff refused and the man fled the business.

The would-be robber was described as wearing black trousers, a black coat with the hood up and a scarf covering his face.

It's believed he may have been accompanied by another man in a grey hooded top who waited outside the store during the incident.

Police have appealed for information and can be contacted on the non-emergency number 101.
