"It is depraved for anyone to ransack an elderly person's home and put them in danger. Their actions are impossible to fathom and as a result of these actions, I understand a woman is now in a critical condition in hospital.

No doubt this will have been a terrifying experience for the woman involved, especially since it took place within a quiet area. Coming to terms with an incident like this will be very difficult.

There has been a spate of burglaries in the area recently. I have been speaking to the PSNI on this and have been calling for robust action to combat crime in the area, however it is important that members of the public remain vigilent and report any suspicious activity."
