Reacting angrily to news that an elderly lady had been robbed in Kilcooley over the weekend, North Down’s MP, Lady Hermon said:
“I was extremely angry and shocked when I heard that a lady had been robbed of a substantial amount of money in her Kilcooley home at the weekend.
Putting an elderly lady in her 90s through such a terrifying ordeal is outrageous and totally unacceptable behaviour. I cannot even begin to imagine the terrible fear and distress she must have experienced, and I sincerely trust she recovers fully from this dreadful experience.
Anyone who has the slightest bit of information that would lead to the apprehension of the culprit, or culprits, should immediately contact the local police. While we certainly don’t want any repetition of this sort of incident, we do want thieves arrested and brought promptly before the courts.”
