Police appeal following report of petrol bomb attack

1 Mins read

Detectives are appealing for information following the report of a petrol bomb being thrown at a property in the Belvoir area of south Belfast in the early hours of this morning, Sunday 17 May.

Detective Sergeant O’Flaherty said: “We received a report just after 1.45am of a fire at a house in the Downhill Avenue area.

“Police attended along with colleagues from Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service, who extinguished the blaze.

“Significant damage has been caused to the front door of the porch. A man and woman, who were inside the property at the time, were fortunately uninjured.

“We are treating this as arson. And had the fire not been extinguished so quickly, the consequences could have been devastating.

“I am appealing to anyone with information, or who noticed any suspicious activity in the area, to contact us on 101 quoting reference number 163 of 17/05/20.”

Information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.
