Cllr Maire Hendron said: “I am extremely worried by this attack. This now brings the number of attacks in this area to three in two days.
“I am concerned that all these crimes have been violent attacks on people’s homes. Everybody expects to be safe and secure in their own homes, but these attacks have broken that sanctity.
“I called for police to increase patrols in the area after the second violent attack, but now that there has been a third the police must now focus on this area.
“I would urge anybody with any information about any of these attacks to contact the police. Hopefully by arresting those behind all these attacks, the police will be able to prevent any more attacks.”
