30 June, 2008

South Antrim MLA, Mitchel McLaughlin has appealed for the 17 year old youth being sought in connection with a serious sexual assault on a 13 year old girl in South Antrim to hand himself into the PSNI.

Mitchel McLaughlin said:

"I strongly condemn this serious sexual assault on a thirteen year old child and send my sympathy to her and her family. I understand that there is a 24 year-old man in custody but that the PSNI are also seeking a 17 year-old in connection with this attack.

"I appeal to this youth to come forward to the police and help them with their enquiries. I would also strongly urge any other person who may have information that would help in this investigation to go to the PSNI with that information." ENDS
