Newry family escape injury in stone throwing attack

“The latest incident happened on Tuesday night when the family was leaving the Parkhead Crescent estate. A number of large stones were launched at the car causing significant damage.

“It seems to me that the thugs responsible for these attacks are actually trying to cause serious injury to someone,” the local Councillor stated.

Casey continued, “My party recently held a very constructive meeting with the community association to assist them in whatever way we can to address some of the problems but others need to step up to the plate.

“The PSNI must be more proactive in apprehending the small number of young people responsible for these ongoing attacks. This behavior is simply unacceptable.
