She said,
"I would firstly like to extend my sympathy to this young girl who has been subject to such a terrifying ordeal. People are in absolute shock at hearing the news that this young woman was knocked to the ground and robbed by two cowardly thugs as she made her way from ASDA along Bradley Way towards Urney Road in the town between 6pm-6.30pm.
"This shock is compounded by the fact that this type of despicable crime is practically unheard of in the Strabane area. Hopefully this young girl will be able to fully recover from the severe trauma that has been inflicted upon her and everyones' thoughts and prayers are with her at this time.
"The culprits behind this are still at large so I would appeal to anyone who has information which could lead to their apprehension to pass it on immediately." ENDS
