2 Mins read

Police are today releasing images of people they wish to speak with in relation to serious public disorder in Rosapenna Street last summer.

Detective Chief Inspector Gary Reid said; “Today we are releasing 14 images of individuals whom we’d like to talk to in connection with our ongoing investigations into serious public disorder which took place in the area of Rosapenna Street on Sunday 9 August last year following the Anti-Internment Parade.

“Over the course of the day, there was a small number of people in the area who were intent on causing disorder and attacking police officers. A number of missiles and petrol bombs were thrown at police and water cannon was used to manage the disorder. Unfortunately a number of officers sustained minor injuries.

“To date ten people have been arrested and charged for offences relating to this disorder.

DCI Reid continued, “Last week we issued an initial set of images in relation to the serious public disorder which took place on Monday 13th July 2015. Five of these people have already been identified and we are extremely grateful for the support and assistance from members of the public in assisting us with our investigations.

“We are committed to identifying those involved in all of the disorder last summer and we will be relentless in our pursuit in order to bring these offenders before the Courts.

“By releasing these images I am hopeful that the wider community will help us identify these individuals. It is in everybody’s interest – as well as in the interest of justice – that those responsible are dealt with appropriately and I would urge anyone who may have any information to bring it forward.

“I also encourage the persons within these pictures to contact police directly – in doing so they will minimise the impact on themselves, their family and their community.”

Anyone who may be able to identify any of these individuals or provide any information about them such as their name, address or age is urged to contact detectives at Strandtown Police Station on 02890 901734. This number is staffed Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm, an answer machine will be in operation outside of these office opening hours. Detectives can also be contacted by email on [email protected]

Alternatively, if anyone would prefer to provide information to the independent charity Crimestoppers they can speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.
