DETECTIVES are investigating a loyalist paramilitary link to attacks on two men who had their arms broken in Carrickfergus.

The first incident happened at a house in the Sunnylands Grove area of the Co Antrim town at around 10.20pm on Monday.

A gang of masked men broke in and assaulted a man with wooden baseball bats. He was taken to hospital for treatment on a suspected broken arm.

Then at around 10.30pm police received reports a large group of men forced their way into a house in Pinewood Avenue and set upon a man using hammers.

He was taken to hospital with two suspected broken arms.

Also at 10.30pm, a gang of masked men kicked in the front door of a third house in Knocklade.

They went in but later left with no reports of anyone being assaulted.

Detectives are investigating a link between the three incidents.

They have asked anyone who witnessed suspicious activity or who has any further information to come forward.
