Hagan shock at knifepoint robbery of priest

Portadown Alliance Representative Sean Hagan has expressed disgust at news of a priest being robbed in the town last night. The incident took place yesterday around 5.20pm at the Parochial House on Moy Road in the town, and the perpetrators made off with a substantial amount of money.

Sean Hagan said: “This was a despicable incident. This must have been a deeply traumatic experience and my thoughts are with the priest subjected to this ordeal.

“Given that knives were carried, the serious threat pose by the culprits was very clear.

“It is alarming that this is the third time in two and a half years that this parochial house has been robbed. I would appeal to anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area to contact police urgently so that the perpetrators can be caught.”
