Speaking about events on Monday night last, May 13, PSNI Inspector Spence said today: “We received reports of two incidents, both in the Lincoln Court area.

“It is believed that black paint was thrown over the front door of a house and also over a Ford Fiesta parked nearby at around 11pm on Monday.

“Just a short time after, at approximately 11.30pm, black paint was thrown at a second home in the area and also over the windscreen of a Volkswagen Jetta.

“We are appealing for anyone who has information about either incident, to contact us on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 257 of 14/05/19.”

Alternatively, information can 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, police said.
