Councillor Jackson said “Last Wednesday night this family home had an iron bar thrown through the kitchen window and had paint smeared over the front door.
“The damage caused to the kitchen gives an indication of the force this iron bar was thrown at the window and it doesn’t bear thinking about what might have happened if someone had been in the kitchen at the time.
Understandably this horrific attack has had a devastating impact on this family and has sent shock waves through this small tight knit community. This is the latest of a number of attacks on this family who are determined not to allow criminals drive them from their home.
Concluding he said
Given the upsurge in burglaries and criminal activity in the area over recent weeks I would call on everyone to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity to the PSNI.
