The Warrenpoint community has been shocked by a robbery in the town that saw a 95 year old man subjected to a terrifying ordeal in his own home on Lower Dromore road. psni44During the incident, three individuals entered the elderly man’s home. Local Sinn Fein councillor Mickey Ruane expressed his anger at what he described as ‘the heartlessness of the thieves’ and described them as ‘cowards’ who have left the victim fearing for his safety in his own home. “I wholeheartedly condemn the actions of the persons involved. For a small return to themselves they have left an elderly citizen of our community living in fear. “I feel that it is fair to expect that having contributed to society for 95 years, one should be allowed to live in peace and enjoy the safety of your own home. “To think that he may now be unable to do so is simply unacceptable and I would appeal to anyone who may have seen or heard something that could help bring the perpetrators to justice, to come forward and share their information with the local police. “The sooner the individuals responsible are removed from our society the better,” Councillor Ruane insisted. He appealed to the Warrenpoint Community to be aware of elderly and vulnerable people who may be targeted by similar thieves and to keep an eye out for any suspicious activity. “This is our community and we all have a role to play in keeping it safe for everyone,” he added.
