Armed pair rob shop in Newry
Two masked men armed with a hatchet and what is believed to have been a gun have robbed a shop in Newry.
Sunday, 16 December 2012
It happened in the Dublin Road area of the city at around 10pm on Saturday.
The armed pair ordered a staff member to hand over two till drawers, which contained a small amount of money.
They then made their escape in a dark coloured Avensis car which was later found burnt out close to a hotel in the Ravensdale Park area, Dundalk.
Police said the staff members were not hurt but were left shaken.
Anyone with more information has been asked to come forward.
