27 year old woman arrested after Newry stabbing incident

A 27-year-old woman has been arrested in Newry on suspicion of attempted murder.

The arrest follows a stabbing incident in a flat in Sandy Street, Newry this morning.

The stabbing victim was taken to Daisy Hill Hospital but was later transferred to a Belfast hospital.

Speaking to Newry Times, Detective Inspector Keith Gawley said, “Police have arrested a 27 year old woman on suspicion of attempted murder following a stabbing incident in the Sandy’s Street area of Newry in the early hours of this morning. She is currently in police custody.”

Sinn Féin MLA Mickey Brady said the stabbing incident was ‘deeply concerning’. “Details of this specific incident which took place in the city in the early hours of this morning is presently under police investigation.

“Reports have it that a person has been seriously injured in an alleged stabbing incident. Knife crime appears now to be a regular feature within our society.

Brady added, “I would make an appeal on two counts, firstly to those who would think of using knives – it solves nothing and is highly dangerous, and secondly; those who use knives on our streets must realise the seriousness of their actions. If anyone has information on this incident to bring it to the PSNI.”

SDLP Newry Councillor Kevin McAteer said, “I totally condemn this type and any type of violence, my thoughts are with the injured man at this time and I wish him a speedy recovery.”
