Alliance Strangford MLA Kellie Armstrong has appealed for information following an attempted murder in Newtownards.
“I am shocked by this incident and know everyone in the local community will be as well,” said Ms Armstrong.
“I am thankful the man was able to escape unharmed. There is absolutely no justification for these actions and as the pair may attempt this again, it is crucial they are apprehended as soon as possible.
“I urge anyone with information on this incident to contact police immediately and help remove these sick individuals from our streets.”
