According to police, the man was left badly shaken as a result of the robbery, but suffered no serious physical injuries.

Two men and a woman were arrested a short time later. The woman, aged 26, was later charged by police on suspicion of robbery and is due to appear in Ballymena Magistrates Court next month. The two men were released on police pending further enquiries.
