Spar Robbery

Ballycastle SDLP Councillor Dónal Cunningham has appealed for information about a robbery at a shop in Ballycastle last night when a man made off with cigarettes.

Cllr Cunningham described the incident as “sinister” and “very worrying”. While no one was injured in the incident, Cllr Cunningham said two staff members was left badly shaken.

“At approximately 8.00pm on Sunday evening an unknown man, who had his face covered with a T-shirt entered the shop and pushed a female member of staff and demanded that she open one of the tills. The man then pushed a second female member of staff and demanded that she open the tills also. The man made off with a quantity of cigarettes. He did not get any money from the tills.

“The two females were not injured during this incident; however they were left very badly shaken. People out doing a day’s work should not be subjected to such terror. It is despicable.”

“I am urging anyone who saw the male entering, or leaving the shop, or who knows anything about what happened, to contact police immediately.”
