A man was lucky to have escaped injury after a petrol bomb attack on his home.
The device was launched through a rear bathroom window of a house in Banbridge on Saturday evening.
A police spokesperson said: “It was reported that at around 7.30pm a petrol bomb had been thrown at the rear bathroom window of a house in Golf Terrace.
“Minor scorch damage was caused to the windowsill of the house as a result.
“The male occupant, who had only recently moved into the house, was not injured.”
Police are working to establish a motive for the attack and Detective Constable Colin Robinson is appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident or anyone with any information to contact Detectives in Lurgan on the non-emergency number 101.
Information can also be passed anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
This comes just over three weeks after a previous petrol bomb attack on a house in Banbridge. There is no suggestion that these attacks are linked.
