A man has sustained minor injuries after trying to fend off two men from the back yard of a house in the Slievemore area last night (October 30).

Police have reported that when the man went out to the yard at about 11pm, one of the unknown men lunged at him with what is believed to have been a knife. He was able to fend them off and they fled the scene.

Detective Inspector Alan Pyper would ask anyone who may have noticed anyone acting suspiciously in the area or who has any information about this incident to contact Police at Strand Road on the non-emergency number 101. Or, if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.
