Lyttle condemns attack on two men in East Belfast

East Belfast Alliance MLA Chris Lyttle has condemned an incident after which a three-year-old girl was taken to hospital, where two men were attacked in their home at Epworth Street off Templemore Avenue last night. The three-year-old girl was not assaulted but was taken to hospital afterwards.

Chris Lyttle MLA said: “This must have been an extremely harrowing incident for the men who were attacked and for the young girl that was taken to hospital. People living in the area will be very shocked that this has happened.

“For people to have been attacked in their home is appalling as the home is meant to be a place of safety.

“This type of behaviour has no place in our society and those behind this attack must be apprehended. I appeal to anyone with information on this incident to contact police immediately.”
