MASKED MEN HUNTED AFTER MALE ASSAULTED WITH HAMMER AND WOMAN HEADBUTTED

DETECTIVES investigating the report of an aggravated burglary in north Belfast last night, Thursday, October 24, are appealing for witnesses and information. 

Detective Sergeant Michael Maguire said: “We received a report at 9:35pm last night that four masked men, all armed with hammers, had forced entry to a property in the Keadyville Avenue area at around 9:20pm.

“Two of the suspects are reported to have assaulted a man inside the house with a hammer.

“A woman, aged in her 20s, who was also in the property intervened and was headbutted; sustaining a minor injury to her mouth.

“The man, aged in his 30s, attended hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

“Damage to a door and windows and a number of household items was also reported.

“One of the suspects was reported to have worn a navy-coloured tracksuit with stripes along the sleeves and bottoms.

“I want to appeal to anyone who was in the area between 9:20pm and the time the incident was reported to us and who saw a number of men in the area acting suspiciously.

“Anyone with information is asked to ring detectives at Musgrave on the non emergency number 101, quoting reference number 1344 of 24/10/18.”

Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.
