East Belfast DUP MLA Robin Newton has described an attack early this morning as yet another brutal attack in the east of the city. A man in his 40s was stabbed and beaten during an attack in an alleyway off Clandeboye Street and Epworth street.
Robin Newton said, “Those who carried out this vicious attack, two of whom are thought to be teenagers, must be condemned by all right thinking people. There can be no place in our society for such actions.
The PSNI need support from all sections of our community to stop this level of thuggery. I would appeal to anyone who has even the smallest piece of information to help by bring those responsible to justice by contacting the non-emergency 101 number."
