Bessbrook stabbing: Mulgrew calls for information to catch ‘monsters and thugs’

Sinn Féin councillor Roisin Mulgrew has said new revelations about the stabbing of a pensioner in Bessbrook make it all the more imperative that the culprits are caught quickly.

psni50“The PSNI have now released information indicating that the weapon used to stab this defenceless pensioner may have been a hook,” she said.

“This latest detail only goes to highlight the level of depravity employed by these thugs. People who are capable of this level of barbarity are a very real danger to society and they must be caught quickly,” she insisted.

“I’d urge everyone from the area to think hard about where they were when the attack happened and if they noticed anything at all that could help police apprehend these monsters before anyone else is hurt.

Mulgrew added, “There is utter revulsion in the community at this attack and our thoughts and prayers remain with the victim of this harrowing experience.”
