Councillors urge police to crack down on anti-social behaviour

1 Mins read

Police are being urged to crack down on anti-social behaviour in the seaside town of Portrush.

Mayor of Causeway Coast & Glens Mark Fielding is the latest Councillor to highlight concerns in the Borough this week following an alleged assault on a number of individuals last night.

In a statement to Causeway Coast Community he said “For the second Friday evening in a row, assaults have been inflicted on locals by groups of youths roaming about the centre of Portrush. Last Friday a 17-year-old was attacked on Main Street and last night 4 other locals also suffered at the hands of youths roaming about the town centre. It appears to be a common thread, large numbers of youths on a Friday evening in Portrush and coming by train to the town from late afternoon.

“Last night I was informed that around 8:30 pm a large number of youths were drinking around the Amphitheater, Station square on Kerr Street and I reported it to the Police in which they responded.

“It is disturbing to hear of assaults on four people in Eglinton Street on another Friday evening in Portrush. I would appeal to anyone with concerns about the behaviour of groups of youths to report to the police.

“At a time of pandemic gatherings of youths shouldn’t be occurring in the first place. I would hope in future weekends that such assaults can be prevented and I will be speaking to Police regarding this matter which needs to be addressed.”
