Mellon condemns ‘vicious’ attack in Derry

Sinn Féin Councillor Aileen Mellon has condemned a vicious attack on a woman in the Galliagh area of Derry by a masked gang.

Cllr Aileen Mellon said:

“A woman was viciously attacked on Thursday night in Bloomfield Park by a group of masked men in her home.

“I unreservedly condemn this brutal attack – the very thought that people would enter someone’s home and do this is shocking.

“The women’s children were in the property at the time and have been left badly shaken by this terrible ordeal. This will have a lasting impact on them.  

“I am calling on anyone with information to bring it forward to the PSNI.” Críoch/Ends
