Man Taken To Hospital Following Domestic Related Incident

1 Mins read


Up to 8 police vehicles, both marked and unmarked, with firearms officers attended an incident in the Trinity Drive area of Ballymoney last night.

Jonathan Crawford, an eyewitness said  “The incident was confined to an upstairs flat in the Trinity Drive area which police secured and later brought in a police negotiator with their efforts in talking to a male individual.

At one point near the conclusion, a raised voice could be heard from one of the flat windows arguing with the police. Shortly after a woman was escorted from the other end of the block of flats and placed into one of the waiting police cars.

A brief time late after the ambulance arrived back on the scene, after leaving earlier, a male under armed guard was led out the back of the flats appearing to have cuts to his throat and wrists, before being placed in a waiting police van.”

Inspector Colin Shaw said:  “Police received a report of concern for the safety of a vulnerable man in the Trinity Drive area of Ballymoney around 8pm last night, Tuesday 24 July.

“Officers attended the address, along with the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service. One man was taken to hospital.”

Cllr Darryl Wilson said “I was contacted on Tuesday evening by numerous residents of the Trinity Drive area of the Glebeside Estate in Ballymoney due to a number of police cars appearing in the area shortly after 7pm.

When I arrived at the scene over 7 PSNI vehicles and an ambulance were in attendance. Numerous local residents had also gathered at the scene. Over the next 5 hours the PSNI presence increased, it became apparent that a serious incident was occurring within one of the flats located on the street. At around midnight a person was taken from the flat, at this point all emergency services left the area. It is my understanding that this was a domestic-related incident.”
