Two teenage girls pulled from wall and attacked by hooded males

Two teenage girls were attacked from behind by two hooded males in Lurgan on Saturday night.

The terrifying ordeal happened around 11pm on Saturday night close to the entrance to the golf club.

The girls were sitting on a wall near to Belvedere Forest when they were attacked from behind and pulled off the wall by two young men.

Both girls were verbally abused and beaten before the men then ran off in the direction of the town centre.

A PSNI spokesperson said: “This was a totally unproved attack and two young girls doing nobody any harm.

“If you were in the area at that time. If you were passing and saw two boys in dark hoodies with their hoods up running in that area. If you managed to catch any of this on a dash cam.

“If you were a taxi driver passing and saw something unusual. If anyone saw anything we want to hear from you.

“All our kids should be able to go out of a night with their friends and come home the way they left.”

You can either contact Police on 101, or contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 quoting Reference No 2204 of 29/11/2019.
