Laganbank Alliance Party Representative, Allan Leonard, has slammed
those that carried out a robbery on a bank security van at the Ulster
Bank on the Ormeau Road this morning. A security guard was injured in
the robbery which took place at 1100 BST today.
Allan Leonard stated: “I strongly condemn this robbery and am appalled that a security guard was hurt in the incident.
“The Ormeau Road is a busy commercial area and this robbery will
unfortunately have damaged the good image of the area and the
confidence of local residents.
“It is very sinister that the incident took place in the daytime, as
there would have been a high level of pedestrians and traffic in the
area at the time.
“Given that the robbery took place in broad daylight, I would call
on anyone who witnessed the incident to contact police immediately.”
