McGuinness slams those behind callous assault and robbery

6 June, 2012 - by Westminster


Sinn Féin MP for Mid Ulster, Martin McGuinness MLA has today slammed those who were responsible for a callous attack on a 16 year old, his 70 year old grandmother and uncle during a robbery at their home in the Magherafelt area.

Speaking today Mr McGuinness said:

“The attack on this young man, along with his grandmother and uncle, was both brutal and callous. It has left him fighting for his life and can only be described as a very serious situation.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family at this time.

“This is a close knit and quiet area and it will be left in a state of shock at this entire incident, the attack on this family and the robbery.

“I would call on anybody who saw anything suspicious or has any information to bring it to the PSNI. Those behind this attack must be taken off our streets to ensure there can be no repeat of this.”
