A 24-year-old woman is to appear at Banbridge Magistrates Court later this month on a charge in connection to an alleged robbery attempt at a shop in Banbridge.

Police received a report of an attempted robbery at McKinstry Newsagents on the Dromore Road area on Friday afternoon (June 28).

The woman was arrested and later charged with assaulting a police officer. A 25-year-old man, who was also arrested, has since been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

As is normal procedure, all charges are reviewed by the PPS.
