23 December, 2007

Sinn Féin Newry Armagh MP Conor Murphy has said that local people are shocked and angry after a late night sex attack on a 70 year-old woman in Newry last night.

Mr Murphy said:

"This was a vicious attack. Thankfully a passing citizen intervened.

"We need to ensure that the perpetrator is taken off the streets because he is clearly a danger to women. Anyone with any information about this attack should not hesitate in bringing it forward to the police.

"People in the local community are shocked and angry at this attack. I also want to encourage people to be vigilant." ENDS
