Anna Lo MLA said: “I am shocked at this bank robbery. It’s deeply worrying that a weapon was used in the incident.
“This would have been a very traumatic event for the bank staff and my thoughts are with them as they come to terms with this experience.
“Given that the Lisburn Road is a busy shopping street and this robbery took place in broad daylight, I would hope that someone saw something that could assist police with their investigation. I appeal to anyone with information on this incident to contact police immediately.”
