Anna Lo MLA said: “These burglaries were shameful. I cannot comprehend the minds of people who would rob frail pensioners. Older people should be respected, not subjected to ordeals like these.
“It is shocking that three pensioners were robbed in incidents across the city last night. Police are examining whether these crimes were linked.
“There have been a number of older people targeted in recent days and this trend is extremely disturbing.
“People who target frail and vulnerable in people are nothing but cowards. They need to be stopped and put behind bars now. Anyone who witnessed any of these incidents should contact police immediately to assist them with their investigations.”
