POLICE IN NORTHERN Ireland are appealing for information after two men armed with batons smashed their way into a house yesterday evening and attacked the woman inside.

The incident occurred in the Laurelbank area of Dunmurry, Co Antrim, just after 7.30pm last night.

The PSNI said that a number of men smashed the windows of a house and two cars parked outside.

They are said to have forced entry into the house and attacked the woman who was inside. She did not sustain any serious injuries.

The assailants made their way off on foot.

Later that evening, police arrested a 28-year-old man in the area on suspicion of possessing an “offensive weapon” after a fight broke out between two men.

The man was interviewed and later released on bail pending further inquiries.

Police are appealing for anyone who witnesses the incident, or has information related to it, to contact them at Woodbourne Police Station on 101, quoting reference number 1052 of 18/1/17.
