Two men arrested after suspected ramming incident on Keady Road in Armagh

Keady police incident

Two men in their 20s have been arrested following an attempted ramming in Armagh earlier today (Wednesday).

The incident led to a large police operation which culminated in the arrests of the men – aged 22 and 24 – at a farmyard in the Keady area.

It is understood a police vehicle was badly damaged during the operation, which lasted several hours.

Police helicopters and various checkpoints were placed along the Castleblayney Road / Clea Road area earlier this evening as the search for the vehicle continued.

The two men were eventually arrested on suspicion of a number of motoring offences.

Chief Inspector Bernard O’Connor told Armagh I: “The arrests follow a road-related incident on the Keady Road, Armagh, which was reported just after 3.45pm.

“A member of the public reported that a suspicious vehicle, with two males on board, had attempted to ram the reporting person off the road.

“Both men remain in custody at this time.

“Our enquiries continue, and I am appealing to anyone with information, or who may have captured dash cam footage, to contact us on 101 quoting reference number 1180 of 05/05/21.”
