The doctor was leaving the Park Road practice about 9pm, carrying his medical kit and was walking towards his car parked in Railway Street.
As the 42-year-old doctor neared his car, he was approached by two men hidden in bushes on the corner of Park Road and Railway Street. One of the men held his fists up towards the doctor’s face and demanded he hand over his bag, which he did.
The two men ran into Park Road and were last seen heading into Veigals Lane.
The bag contained numerous prescription drugs and other medical items. The doctor was not injured during the incident.
The first man is described as being about 180cm tall, thin to medium build with an olive complexion. He was wearing a light coloured top, dark track pants and a baseball cap. The second man was a similar build wearing a zip-up jacket, dark pants and a baseball hat. Both men are aged in their early 20s.
Police secured a crime scene and the area was searched with the assistance of the Police Dog Unit. Inquiries are continuing.
