Police in Co Antrim are currently investigating an armed robbery that took place at a business establishment on Woodburn Road in Carrickfergus on Friday, April 19th.

According to reports, two individuals, one armed with what appeared to be a firearm and the other wielding a knife, entered the premises at approximately 11:10 PM on Friday night. They proceeded to threaten both customers and staff before absconding with a sum of money.

Shortly after the incident, PSNI stopped a white Hyundai car on Prince Andrew Way in Carrickfergus and subsequently arrested a 30-year-old male on suspicion of robbery and possession of an offensive weapon. He is currently being held in custody.

The individual with the suspected firearm was described as wearing a light-colored tracksuit and a white puffa-style jacket, along with black trainers, a black balaclava, and gloves. The person carrying the knife was reported to be wearing a black tracksuit with a white and black balaclava, as well as black gloves.

Investigative efforts are ongoing to locate the second individual involved. Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact detectives on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 2072 19/04/24.
