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.”
