THE PSNI has blasted as “mindless” those who attacked police vehicles as they dashed to the scene of a sudden death.
The attack happened at the Ballycolman estate in Strabane, Co Tyrone on Monday evening.
Police revealed details on Strabane PSNI Facebook page.
According to the PSNI, officers were attacked while attempting to deal with what was “a sensitive matter”.
“These young people were well aware of the issue being dealt with but refused to desist from their behaviour.”
The officer added: “Whilst we are trying to reduce the use of the Land Rover in dealing with calls, and I appreciate they can be quite noisy when driving around estates, it is behaviour like this that forces the police to use these heavy vehicles as they are less easily damaged.”
