PSNI: Police investigate robbery at Meadowbank in Derry


Police in Derry have launched an investigation into a robbery of a driver in the city this morning, January 15. The incident took place shortly before 11am at Meadowbank Avenue.

It's understood that a red Volkswagen Caddy van was blocked off by a white Transit vehicle before a hooded man wearing a high visibility jacket and who had his face covered by a scarf approached the red van.

The robber then reached inside the vehicle and removed a bag containing a large sum of cash before escaping on foot in the direction of Barry Street.

Detective Sergeant Richard Donnell said: "We believe there was a build-up of traffic on Meadowbank Avenue when the robbery occurred and we are keen to speak to witnesses and motorists who were in the area, particularly those who may have captured footage on dashcams or smartphones.  "Detectives can be contacted on 101, quoting reference number 316 15/01/19."
