SDLP East Derry MLA John Dallat

012, UK, Refugee News Network )-

SDLP East Derry MLA John Dallat has described a robbery in Kilrea last night as ?despicable, cowardly and disgraceful?.

Mr Dallat has called for every person who may be able to piece the jigsaw together to contact the police immediately.

He said:

?At 10.40pm the home of an elderly couple was invaded by thieves who sprung their cowardly attack as the daughter of the couple arrived with Christmas presents.

?I know the couple personally for many years who are the kindest and friendliest people you would ever want to meet.  They didn?t deserve this and those who carried out the robbery should hang their heads in shame.

?What a dreadful thing to do to people in the mouth of Christmas.  Have these thieves stooped to the lowest level possible?  I believe so.

?I hardly remember when we last had a robbery in Kilrea.  It is one of the safest places to live and people will be shocked that this has happened in their neighbourhood.

?It would be nice to see the thieves locked up for Christmas as this couple and their daughter try to recover from their ordeal.  Certainly they will have the support of local people who no doubt share my sentiments about those who did it.?
