A 33 year old woman was arrested at the scene on suspicion of assault on police and then charged to appear at Newry Magistrates Court. Both men remain in custody helping police with their enquiries.

The injured man, who is in his 30’s, was taken to hospital to be treated for injuries to his face, head and body.

Police would ask anyone who has any information about this incident to contact them in Ardmore on 0845 600 8000.

Or, if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details, they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.
