Craigavon knifepoint incidents 'possibly linked' as PSNI hunt teenagers

Two knifepoint incidents in Co Armagh are being investigated by police for a possible link.

In one incident which happened on Monday, March 20 at around 5.40pm on the Tullygally Road in Craigavon, a 21-year-old victim was approached by two teenagers, one with a knife and the other with a screwdriver, who threatened him.

The man was forced to hand over his phone and bankcards, as well as cash, before the robbers made him walk with them to Carrigart where they 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.

A link between that incident and an earlier attempted robbery is being looked at police.

Police say 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.

Police have appealed for anyone with information about either incident to contact them.
