Commenting on police reports of a stabbing incident in the Glenmanus area of Portrush on Thursday evening UUP Alderman Norman Hillis said
“I am shocked and appalled that two people have been hospitalised as the result of a stabbing in a residential part of Portrush last night.
Knife crime is very dangerous and has frequently led to loss of life particularly in London.
No one should be carrying a knife for any reason whatsoever. I urge anyone with information regarding this serious crime to please contact the PSNI immediately”
