Lo condemns ‘sinister’ Ormeau Road assault

South Belfast Alliance MLA Anna Lo has expressed shock at news that a man was beaten with a bat and shots were fired at his car in the Ormeau Road area of the city. The man was assaulted following a row in a pub and shots were fired at around 11pm last night.

Anna Lo MLA said: “This was a despicable incident. It’s extremely sinister that shots were fired at a car and it demonstrates the sickening lengths that those who carried out the attack would go to. These events have really shocked the local community.

“This would have been very traumatic for the victim and I hope those who carried out the assault and fired shots can be caught quickly and taken off the streets.

“The initial assault took place in a pub, so there must be people who can help police with their investigation. I would appeal to anyone with information to contact police immediately.”
