Lunn appalled by pensioner robbery

Alliance Lagan Valley MLA Trevor Lunn has expressed his shock at the robbery at the house of a woman in her 90s. Two men entered the pensioner’s house in Lisburn on Tuesday morning where they threatened her with a screwdriver before making off with a sum of money.

Trevor Lunn MLA said: “This was a brutal attack on a frail pensioner in her own home. A person’s house is meant to be a safe place for them. It is especially devastating when an older person is attacked in their own home.

“To threaten a pensioner in her 90s with a screwdriver just shows the lack of respect for the elderly that these robbers have.

“I am sure that this pensioner endured a harrowing ordeal during this robbery and my thoughts are with her at this time.

“I would urge anybody with any information about this robbery to contact the police.”
