Councillor Alex Easton has condemned those behind a carjacking in Bangor last week as “callous” and “despicable”.
The incident saw a woman having her car forced to stop by a man in the Cranston Park area of Rathgill on December 19.
Details of the incident, which have just been released, revealed that a man, dressed in black, forced the woman to stop her car and then got into the passenger seat.
He threatened her and told her to drive to the Green Road at Conlig. About a mile along the Conlig Road he made her pull into a private lane and stop. He then demanded money from the woman and made off on foot with a sum of cash.
Councillor Easton said: “This is a callous, traumatic and despicable crime.
“I know the police will leave no stone unturned in investigating this heinous crime.
“To do this to an innocent lady is cowardly and the pathetic actions of those devoid of conscience and humanity.”
Police said the assailant is described as approximately 5ft 8in in height and of small build.
He was dressed in a black hooded top and trousers and distinctive sky blue gloves, and spoke with what was described as a strong Belfast accent.
Police believe a white Ford Transit type van, seen parked not far from where the man made off, may be involved.
Anyone who has any information about the robbery is asked to contact detectives on 0845 600 8000.
