Eastwood condemns armed robbery

Alliance Castlereagh South representative Sorcha Eastwood has condemned those behind an armed robbery at a local shopping centre.

Two masked men entered the Winemark at Carryduff Shopping Centre around 9:10pm yesterday (Thursday) before threatening a member of staff with a hammer, pushing him to the back of the store and making off with money and cigarettes.

“I utterly condemn this incident and my thoughts are with the member of staff who went through this ordeal,” said Ms Eastwood.

“Thankfully the staff member was not injured but I hope they receive any help they need to recover from this experience.

“The perpetrators of this robbery are clearly dangerous individuals who need to be taken off our streets. I urge anyone with information on this incident to contact police with it immediately.”
