Tallon Concern at Meadowbrook Knife incident

Published: 14 January, 2019

Sinn Féin spokesperson Michael Tallon has expressed his shock and disbelief after a large knife was thrown at family home in Meadowbrook on Friday night.

Mr Tallon said,

"It appears there was a game of rap door run which many young people play. However, someone brought it to a dangerous low when they threw a large knife at the door of a family home.

"Someone could have been killed or seriously injured as a result of this mindless incident. That anyone would think of even carrying such a blade is alarming".

In conclusion Mr Tallon said,

"If individuals are going about with knives in their possession it will only end in tragedy.

"I would call on anyone with information about this incident to bring it to the PSNI. This incident went beyond any high jinks. We have to protect our young people and community."
