Police have released CCTV footage of a man wanted in connection with an armed robbery in Ballycarry.

The incident took place at a shop in the village at around 12.30pm on December 16, 2014.

Detective Chief Inspector Catherine Magee said a man entered the shop and threatened the female worker with a large kitchen knife.

She added: “The man in the footage has his face well covered, but I believe that his movements and stance may lead to his identification.

“We are releasing this CCTV footage after initial investigations failed to identify the man, and so public information is crucial.

“He made off in the direction of the Leafield Estate with a small sum of cash.

“If you can assist the investigation please contact detectives on the non-emergency number 101. Or, you can call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
