Dickson condemns ‘brutal’ attack in Carrickfergus

Alliance MLA Stewart Dickson has condemned a serious assault which occurred in Carrickfergus on Saturday night, March 11.

A member of staff from the Royal Oak Bar, Green Street, was attacked around 9.40pm. Two men have since been arrested.

He said: “I must condemn this horrifying attack which has left the victim with serious head injuries.

“The extent of the injuries indicates this was a brutal attack, made all the more chilling as the victim was simply carrying out his duties on a Saturday night as an employee of a popular local bar.

“My thoughts are with the victim, his family and wider circle and I hope we hear positive news on his condition in the hours and days to come.

“I urge anyone with information to contact the PSNI as soon as possible so a full, clear picture of what occurred can be established.”
