Service Station Robbed In Portadown

A service station has been robbed in Portadown.

The incident occurred on the Dobbin Road on Thursday shortly before 9am.

A masked man entered the shop with a bag containing a weapon, according to the police.

He made off with a sum of cash.

Detective Constable Paul Murphy said: "The robber is described as in his 30s, 5' 10" tall, slim build with dark hair. He was wearing a dark baseball cap, black fleece, dark blue jeans and dark gloves.

"I am appealing for anyone with information or who may have seen this male in the area last night to get in touch with detectives in Lurgan by calling the non-emergency number 101.

"I would like to make a particular appeal to a female jogger who passed by the forecourt of the service station just minutes before the robbery. She was running from the Portadown direction towards Armagh and it is possible she may have seen something that could assist the investigation. We are keen to hear from her or anyone else who was in the area at the time."
