Cars and homes attacked by masked men in late night crime spree

Police checkpoint night

Police are appealing for information following overnight reports of criminal damage at properties in the Banbridge area.

At approximately 9.30pm last night (Sunday) the windows of three cars parked at Thornheights were smashed by three masked men.

A bedroom window was also broken and a man was injured during the attack.

It is believed the men made off from the scene in a blue mini-van/people carrier.

A white Volkswagen Golf was also parked near this mini-van/people carrier.

Between 4.10am and 4.40am this morning, Monday, April 16, the living room windows in two properties in the Brookfield Avenue and Iveagh Drive areas were broken.

A car parked at the property in Iveagh Drive had all four tyres slashed and a corrosive substance poured over it.

Detective Inspector McCamley would appeal to anyone who noticed any suspicious activity or vehicles in the area to contact Detectives at Lurgan on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference numbers 1167 15/04/18 and 117 and 126 16/04/18.

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.

Police would also ask the driver of the white Volkswagen Golf to get in touch, as they may have information that could assist with inquiries.
