Witnesses Sought Regarding Downpatrick Assault

Detectives investigating an assault within the Colmcille area of Downpatrick are issuing an appeal for potential witnesses to contact them.

Detective Sergeant Lynch said: “Sometime between 2.30pm and 3.30pm on Monday, 9th May it was reported a man assaulted a female within a vehicle.

“Our investigation into this incident is continuing and I would like to make a specific appeal for a witness.

“We believe a female passer-by who was outside a school on Racecourse Hill may have witnessed this assault that occurred inside a vehicle that was stopped outside this location.

“I am appealing today for them to get in touch with us so we can determine if they have any information which could assist us with our investigation.

“I would ask them to contact detectives on 101 quoting reference 1012 of 09/05/22. Alternatively information can be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800555111 that gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
