TWO men threatened staff and demanded money at a post office during an armed robbery.

One of the men was armed with a pole and threatened the cashier, while the other offender threatened a female customer during the robbery in Woodstock Road at 12.50pm.

The robbers stole cash and left the scene on bicycles. No one was injured in the robbery.

One man was wearing a long sleeved black puffa-style jacket, dark-coloured jeans and shoes, and was carrying a rucksack.

The other man wore a grey hooded top with an emblem on the left breast, stripes on its shoulders and black hoops around the arms, black jeans and brown shoes.

Investigating officer Det. Sgt Mike West said: “I am appealing to anyone who saw what happened or anyone with any information about the incident to contact police.

“The Post Office was busy at the time of the incident and I would ask anyone in there at the time to phone 101 to speak to an officer.

“I would also be interested to hear from anyone who saw men matching the description of the offenders, one of whom was wearing a very distinctive hooded top, in the Observatory Street or Walton Street area after the robbery.”
