“A number of homes have been attacked. In one of these reckless incidents shots were fired at a house and in another a masked gang entered a property, causing damage and attacking the female occupant. Threats have also been made against several people.

“It is intolerable that this is happening in 2022. Those responsible for these attacks have nothing to offer and need to end these futile incidents immediately. Anyone with information should also bring it forward.”
