Hargey disgusted at knifepoint mugging attempt
Councillor Deirdre Hargey has expressed disgust at the attempted mugging at knifepoint of two local women in the Market area on Friday night.
The ordeal left the two women badly shaken.
Deirdre Hargey said:
"I am utterly disgusted at this incident which occurred when two local women were making their way home to the lower Ormeau area along Cromac St.
“It is reported that the attacker ran into the Market area after having threatened the women with a knife. Someone knows who this person is.
“I would appeal to anyone who may have seen this incident or may have any information whatsoever to bring it forward to the PSNI.
“This person is in no way reflective of the local community and local residents have also expressed their disgust to me."
