Attempted robbery condemned- McHugh
Published: 7 January, 2014
Castlederg Sinn Féin Councillor Ruairí Mc Hugh has condemned the attempted robbery of a financial services business in Castlederg.
'' I am led to believe a male entered a financial services business in the Diamond area of the town with the intention of committing a robbery. Before the-would-be thief left the premises empty handed the owner of the business was assaulted with a weapon and had to be treated for cuts to the head and back.
'' I would totally condemn the person responsible for this cowardly act. The owner who is a well respected person has worked hard to make this business a success and I have no doubt that he and any staff will be left traumatised as a consequence of this incident. I would urge anyone with any information to bring it to the attention of the relevant authorities so that the perpetrator is brought to book for this disgraceful act''.
