In the first, on Saturday at 8.25am, a pensioner suffered a number of injuries including a broken finger during a street robbery in Larne.

Police are appealing for information following the incident at Agnew Street on Saturday at 8.25am.

The 63-year-old woman was at a pay station in a public car park when an unknown man approached and grabbed her handbag.

A PSNI spokesman said: “When the woman did not let go she was dragged to the ground and suffered a number of injuries including a broken finger as a result.

“She was taken to hospital for treatment for her injuries.”

Meanwhile two street robberies took place today [April 20] in Portrush.

Two men aged 22-years and 25-years were arrested in connection with the incident. They have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.

A PSNI spokesman said: “Shortly after 12.30am it was reported that a number of males attacked a 19-year-old man in the area of Eglinton Lane and stole a football top that he was wearing.

“The man sustained a cut to his lip during the incident.

“A short time later it was reported that a number of males attacked a 24-year-old man in the Eglinton Street area and stole his mobile phone. The man sustained swelling to side of his face during the incident.”

Police are appealing to anyone who witnessed either of the three incidents to contact them at Ballymoney Police Station on the new non-emergency number 101.
