Shock at horrific nature of attack against 38 year-old woman in Strabane
Sinn Féin West Tyrone MLA Michaela Boyle says people are in a state of shock at the horrific nature of the attack carried out against a 38 year-old woman in Strabane early this morning which has left her in a critical condition.
Michaela Boyle said:
“People are absolutely numb with shock at the horrific nature of this attack perpetrated against this woman and the thoughts of everyone are with the victim and her family at this time.
“My hope is that she can pull through from the life-threatening injuries which she has sustained.
“Police are also reporting that there could be a homophobic element to this horrific attack, which only adds to the sense of outrage felt in the community.
“There is no place for hate crime of any kind in our society and if this report is true then this barbaric attack is all the more reprehensible.
“I would appeal to anyone who can help police in their investigations into this barbaric attack, to come forward immediately and assist.”
