Alliance Party Chair Cllr Michael Long said: “This was a despicable incident, made all the more shocking by the fact that the two robbers not only stole cash, but also the pensioner’s emergency pendant.
“The local community will be appalled at this callous crime. This must have been a terrifying ordeal for the man and my thoughts are with him after this deeply traumatic event.
“I would call on anyone who has information on this robbery to contact police immediately. People who are capable of robbing a 94-year-old need to be taken off our streets quickly.”
