Attempted west Belfast robbery condemned – Sinn Féin

4 January, 2009

Sinn Féin Councillor Janice Austin has condemned those responsible for entering a home in the Springfield Park area and threatening a number of residents in their home.

Cllr Austin said,

"Obviously the PSNI are at a very early stage of their investigation and details on the ground are still fairly sketchy as to what the motivation behind this was. What I do want to say however, is that this attempted burglary must be condemned from the outset.

"This type of incident is unacceptable and I know the community here in the Upper Springfield area are totally horrified at what has taken place.

"Our thoughts are with those people who suffered as a result of this attempted robbery and threats. I would appeal to anyone with information to make it available to the PSNI."
