The PSNI have released footage of a bungling stick-up boy falling on his backside during a robbery at an off licence on Belfast's Ormeau Road.

And now the cops want you to catch the slippery customer. 

For they've released CCTV footage of the robbery which took place back on February 14, around 9.15pm.

The man was described as being 6ft tall, slim and with dark hair.

After falling down, the robber made off with a sum of cash.

Detective Constable Tracey Blair said: “It was raining heavily outside and when the male entered the shop he slipped and fell on the floor with a female customer causing his hat and sunglasses to fall off thus allowing a clear unobstructed view of his face.

“I would appeal any member of public who was present in the off license at the time of the robbery to contact police as they may be able to assist with the investigation.

"I would also ask people to look at this footage carefully to see if they can identify the suspect and to contact CID Musgrave on the non-emergency number 101 or anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
