Lo condemns pensioner robberies

South Belfast Alliance MLA Anna Lo has condemned the robbery of a pensioner in Upper Malone Park on Saturday night. She said that there has been a sickening spate of robberies against older people in greater Belfast in recent times

Anna Lo MLA said: “It takes a particularly despicable type of person to be able to bring themselves to rob a pensioner in their home. While I do not want to be alarmist, there appears quick a significant number of incidents like this and I would call on the police to continue trying to put more police on the beat.

“These thugs are nothing but cowards and they need to be taken off our streets.

“My thoughts are with anyone who has faced traumatic incidents of this nature in recent times.”
