An attack by a masked gang on a Carrickfergus home has been condemned by East Antrim MLA Roy Beggs.
The UUP representative has appealed for anyone with information about Monday evening’s incident at Lennox Avenue, during which the residents of the property were ordered out of the area, to contact the PSNI.
Shortly after 9.00pm, police received a report that a large group of masked men had arrived at the house, some armed with baseball bats. The occupants were told to leave the area and windows on the car and house were smashed.
Mr Beggs said: “I totally condemn this attack on a family home and property by a criminal gang. The male attackers fled the scene in two cars, possibly a silver Renault Clio and a silver Renault Megane.
“I would call on anyone who may have seen anything of note in the area to come forward and speak to the police to help them further their enquiry. This can be done via the PSNI in Larne on 101. Information can also be passed through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
