MLA condemns attack on girl in Dunclug estate last night

Sinn Féin's North Antrim MLA Daithí McKay has condemned an assault which took place during a bonfire last night in the Dunclug estate.

Mr McKay said,

"In the early hours of this morning a young girl was hospitalised as a result of being viciously assaulted at a bonfire in the Dunclug estate by a man in his twenties.

Another woman was threatened by the same man.

This is another example of the fear and intimidation that some individuals are trying to instil in this community and they will not succeed.

The person who carried out this attack is nothing more than a thug and I would call on anyone with information to bring it forward.
