Steven Agnew MLA

Green Party leader comments on Bangor attack video

Steven Agnew MLA said: “I wish the injured girl a speedy recovery following this savage attack. The physical injuries will heal with time but the psychological trauma suffered by this girl will remain.

“This was a sickening attack – I was so angered by the stills that I couldn’t bring myself to watch the video.

“But it is important that the police are supported in their investigation. People are rightly angry following the attack, but they shouldn’t act in a way that could undermine or hamper the investigation.”

The North Down MLA concluded: “This shocking but single incident should not put people off from coming to Bangor and enjoying a day out in the town.”
