Alex Easton MLA and his colleague Councillor Bill Keary have condemned an Assault at the Ashbury Shops last Wednesday evening.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“This is just the latest example of what is occurring at the Ashbury Shops, assaulting a young person as they came out of a shop is totally unacceptable and is not wanted in our community, Those responsible need to be brought before the courts and suitably punished for their actions. At a time were the Council, PSNI, FASA and the shop owners are doing all they can to reduce the anti-social behaviour in the area this type of incident just heightens tensions and is just totally unacceptable. I am calling anyone with information to pass this onto the PSNI.”
