Sexual attack in Lenamore‏

12 June, 2008

Sinn Féin Councillor Elisha McLaughlin has warned women not to walking alone in the Lenamore area after a mother pushing a pram was the victim of a sexual attack.

Councillor McLaughlin said,

"This attacker who struck in broad daylight and in a residential area is obviously prepared to prey on women who are alone no matter the risk of being caught and therefore poses an immense danger to women in the area.

"Sooner or later sexual assault will lead to full rape or even murder as this sick individual seeks his sexual thrills. This is the latest in a line of sexual attacks on women and sexual exposure to children in this area and I would appeal for anyone with information on these attacks to give it to the PSNI so this person can be caught before he can strike again."
