Man faces Bangor video shop robbery charges

A 37-year-old man has been charged with robbery and possession of an imitation firearm.

It follows an incident where a customer tackled a masked robber in a video rental shop in Bangor on Monday evening.

The robber was pointing an apparent weapon at a member of staff in Bloomfield shopping centre.

But the customer jumped over the counter and disarmed and restrained him until police arrived.

The man is due to appear in court in Bangor on Wednesday.
