Police in Newry are appealing for information following an assault in the Daisy Hill area. Around 9pm on Thursday 2nd February, an 18 year old male was walking with a dog towards Carnagat Road when he was approached by two males. The males demanded that the dog be given to them and, when the teenager refused, they assaulted him with a knife. He sustained cuts to his legs which required medical treatment. The first male is described as being approximately 17/18 years old, around 5ft 7in tall, of slim build with dark eyes, a broad nose and long face. He had a piercing in his left eyebrow. This was semi circular with two cone shaped points on each end. He was wearing a dark coloured hooded top and black gloves. He spoke with a foreign accent. The second male is also described as being around 17/18 years old. He was wearing a dark coloured top, black tracksuit bottoms with stripes down the side, white Nike trainers, a dark coloured scarf pulled up over his face and a tight fitting beanie hat. It is believed the males came from a lane-way which connects Woodlands to Daisy Hill. It is known locally as Dead Man’s Lane. Police are appealing to anyone who witnessed the assault or has information in relation to this incident to contact them on 0845 600 8000. If you prefer to provide information without giving your details you can contact the independent Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
