A 19 year old man has been charged with robbery and is expected to appear at Coleraine Magistrates’ Court this morning, Monday, June 10.
As is usual procedure the charge will be reviewed by the PPS.
The charge is in relation to a robbery at a shop on Ballyquin Road in Limavady on Saturday, June 8.
Detective Sergeant Wallace said: “It was reported that at 4.35 pm on Saturday a male entered the premises on Ballyquin Road armed with what was described as a large knife and demanded money.
“The suspect, believed to be aged in his late teens/early twenties, then fled on foot with a sum of money.
“While no injuries were reported, this must have been a frightening ordeal for staff who were simply doing their job.”
