Substance thrown at flat less than 24 hours after racist graffiti attack

A flat in central Craigavon has been attacked twice in less than 24 hours.

Police are appealing for information following the report of criminal damage at the residential premises at the Moyraverty Centre early on Thursday morning.

Sometime between 4am and 7.10am, it was reported that a number of flats in the area had racist graffiti painted on them.

The graffiti has subsequently been removed from the properties.

Constable Young said: “We are also investigating a report of criminal damage in the early hours of this morning (Friday) at the same location.

“It was reported at around 12.25am a substance was thrown at the front door of a flat in the area.

“We are investigating a link between both incidents, which are both being treated as hate crimes.

“Enquiries are continuing and we would appeal to anyone with any information to contact police in Lurgan on 101, quoting reference number 292 24/1/19.

“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.”
