Attack on pensioner ‘vicious and cowardly’ – McCann

31 January, 2015 - by Jennifer McCann


Sinn Féin MLA Jennifer McCann has described an attack last night on a 74-year-old man in his home on the Mullaghglass Road as “vicious and cowardly”.

The West Belfast MLA said:

“This was a vicious and cowardly attack on a pensioner in his own home.

“How anyone can put a knife to a 74-year-old man and cut him in a bid to steal money is beyond me?

“This was a horrific ordeal for the victim and his brother who was home at the time.

“The people who carried out this attack have no regard for anyone and they need to be taken off the streets.

“I urge anyone who has any information on the people behind this attack on a helpless pensioner to immediately contact the PSNI.”
