“Armagh Police are appealing for information following an assault in Bridge Street Portadown [on Saturday night] at approximately 7.30pm.

Meanwhile, Portadown Neighbourhood Policing Team are appealing for information following anti-social behaviour in the Garvaghy Road area on Sunday night.

Two houses were targeted by youths throwing eggs.

A PSNI spokesperson said: “Throwing things at houses can cause scratched paintwork and damage window sills which are expensive to fix. This is criminal damage.

“Anti-social behaviour impacts greatly on people’s quality of life and will not be tolerated. Police are stepping up patrols in the area and will take robust action where necessary. Parents know where your children are.

“Children getting in trouble with Police can lead to a criminal record and parents may have to pay a potential fine.

“If you have any information regarding tonight’s incidents please ring 101 quoting reference number 1444 of 20/11/2022.”
