Police in Newry are appealing for information after a report of assault in Duke Street, Warrenpoint in the early hours of Saturday, 6th September. Sometime between 2am and 3am, it was reported that two males were assaulted by approximately 5 or 6 males in the area. One man was treated for serious head injuries at a nearby hospital. The other man was treated for minor injuries. Enquiries are continuing and police would appeal to anyone with any information in relation to the incident to contact Detective Constable Millar at Ardmore CID on the non emergency number 101 quoting reference 222060914. Or if someone would prefer to provide their details without giving information, they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

    As Chair of the Brain Injury Foundation I want to offer sympathy and support to the man who sustained a head injury on Saturday in Warrenpoint. In the Foundation W see at first hand the terrible life changing impacts of brain injuries sustained as the result of assaults. A brain injury is for life. Just wish those who beat anyone around the head could see the results of their violence. Personally I believe anyone who attacks someone around the head should face charges of attempted murder. Anyone who has sustained a brain injury as the result of an assault or indeed through any other event is very welcome to contact the Foundation by phoning 07740823713 at any time or to call at our weekly Open House very Friday night between 7.30 and 10.30pm. This invitation also applies to Carers and family members.
