Cllr Yvonne Boyle said: “I am shocked that somebody would be so callous as to carry out an attack like this. Somebody could have been seriously injured or worse.
“We can count ourselves lucky that we are not talking about a death.
“I am sure that this must have been an extremely scary and traumatic experience for those inside the house at the time.
“If anybody has any information about this attack then I would urge them to contact the police.”
