Alex Easton MLA has branded those involved as nothing more than thugs, for the assault of a man in his Lismore Avenue home by masked men carrying hammers.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“Alex Easton MLA has described those responsible for forcing their way into a man’s home on Saturday night and assaulting the tenant of the property as thugs. The incident happened at Lismore Avenue, Bangor. This type of incident is a concern for the whole community and is not wanted in by the residents of Whitehill/Lisnabreen. I condemn this incident and would call for anyone with information to come forward to the PSNI so those thugs can be arrested before they seriously hurt someone, nobody has the right to take the law into their own hands.”
