DETECTIVES investigating a robbery at a service station in the Beech Valley area of Dungannon on Monday, 28th October are appealing for information and witnesses.
Detective Sergeant Robinson said: "We received a report just after 8:05pm on Monday night that as a staff member was leaving her workplace a man approached her vehicle and opened the passenger side door brandishing a knife and demanded money.
"The woman screamed and the suspect ran off.
"The suspect, who we believe may have been accompanied by another male, is described as being approximately 5' 6'' tall, spoke with a local accent and of a slight build. It's reported he wore a grey hooded top with the hood pulled up.
"This was a frightening experience for the victim. Thankfully, she was not physically injured, but she has understandably been left shaken by this despicable act.
“I want to appeal to anyone who may have been in the area around this time last night, and who believes they saw a male matching the description of the suspect to get in touch. I would also ask anyone who has information they may believe would assist our investigation to call detectives on 101, quoting reference 1833 of 28/10/19."
Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.
