A 21-year-old man was robbed at knifepoint by two suspected teenagers in Craigavon on Monday night, March 20.

At around 5.40pm the 21-year-old was walking on the Black Path when he was approached by two unknown males, one of whom produced a knife and the other a screwdriver.

They threatened the victim, forcing him to handover his phone, bankcards and cash.

The pair forced the victim to walk with them to Carraigart and then made off.

The robbers are described as approximately 16 to 17-years-old. One had light brown hair and was wearing a grey fleece tracksuit under a navy Berghaus body warmer and a blue surgical face covering.

The second was wearing grey fleece tracksuit bottoms and a black top, white baseball cap and a blue surgical face covering.

Detectives are investigating a possible link between this robbery and an attempted robbery which occurred a short time earlier.

A 16-year-old boy was walking on Lake Road close to the leisure centre at around 5.10pm when he was approached by two teenagers. One of the boys produced a knife and demanded money. The victim refused and the pair made off.
