13 May, 2013 - by Jennifer McCann

Sinn Féin MLA Jennifer McCann has called on the local community to come forward with any information they might have regarding the serious sexual assault on a teenage girl in West Belfast on Saturday night.

The West Belfast MLA said:

“Rape and sexual assault are the most vilest of crimes.  We must ensure that those responsible for such attacks are swiftly taken off the streets, brought to justice and that the victims are given the support and aftercare they need.

"Our thoughts are with this young teenage girl at this time and we offer her whatever support and help we can.

“The local community if they have any information, no matter how small or insignificant they think it might be, should pass it on to the PSNI.”
