A woman has been left traumatised after suffering injuries to her face during a robbery on Carnbane Way in Newry last night Monday 8 April.

Detectives are appealing for witnesses and information following the report of the robbery.

At approximately 6.00pm as the woman was walking past Customs House, Carnbane Way towards Ardmore Road she noticed two men following her.  In an attempt to get away from them she cut through an area of woodland adjacent to the Customs House.  At this point the two men approached her and grabbed her handbag.  She resisted and one of the suspects slashed her face with what she believes was a blade.  A struggle then ensued, however the victim was able to flee from the scene.  She received minor injuries to her face which did not require hospital treatment.

The victim has been left extremely traumatised by this cowardly act of violence.

One of the suspects is described as being tall and wearing a dark hoodie.  The second suspect is described as being of stocky build and wearing a dark baseball cap.  He had a scar running from his forehead to the right hand side of his face and he had what is described as a ‘scruffy ginger beard’.

Detective Sergeant Darragh is appealing to anyone who witnessed this incident or who observed the two men making off from the Retail park near Ardmore Road to contact detectives at Ardmore on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 989 08/04/19. 

Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.
