Magee condemns Belfast stabbings

28 August, 2016 - by JJ Magee


Sinn Féin Councillor JJ Magee said the community is shocked following the stabbing of two men in the city last night.

Cllr Magee said:

"A 20 year-old man stabbed in the Britton's Parade area last night is in a serious condition in hospital. It is my hope that he makes a full recovery from his injuries.

"This attack followed a separate incident in North Belfast were a man was also attacked by a knife.

"I unreservedly condemn both attacks.

"Knives kill and using them as a weapon to attack someone often results in death or life-changing injuries, which has a wide-reaching impact on victims, their families and the wider community.

"I would appeal to anyone who has any information about either attack to contact the PSNI.”
