Naomi Long MLA said: “This was a brutal attack. The incident was made all the more traumatic because the men were attacked in their own home – a place where people should feel safe. My thoughts go out to the men who were assaulted.
“The fact that the men were hit over the head with the iron bars illustrates the sickening intent of the attackers. I would urge anybody who has information about this attack to contact the police so that justice can be done.”
