1 November, 2007

Sinn Féin MLA John O Dowd has the community in the Garvaghy road area of Portadown is in shock following the attack on an elderly man in the area this evening which has resulted in the victim being rushed to hospital with serious injuries.

Mr. O Dowd said,

"The attack on this pensioner outside a local chip shop has the left the tight knit community of Garvaghy road in shock. The violent and unprovoked appears to have been carried out one by person.

"While the PSNI appear to have a clear line of inquiry I have no doubt the community will want to see the perpetrator of such an attack removed form society." ENDS
