East Belfast Assembly candidate Robin Newton, a member of the Policing Board, has described the hold-up of two shops on the Albertbridge Road as appalling incidents that will cause concern for other local shops.
Robin Newton said,
"The robberies of these two local businesses are attacks on the entire community. It is deplorable that staff and owners are subjected to such violent incidents and the longer term mental health issues of such matters can be traumatic.
The PSNI need the support of the local community to catch those responsible and keep the community safe."
