Knife attack on dog walker

POLICE are appealing for help in tracing two men who held a knife to the face of a dog walker in Portadown.

The incident happened at Linisky Lane in Portadown at around 8.30pm on Monday past, and the culprits – believed to have had Eastern European accents – are both described as having short dark hair and being around six feet tall.

The victim had been walking close to a derelict house when he was approached by the pair.

One of them kicked his dog while the second struck him on the back with a knife. The second man then held the knife to the man’s face before both fled the scene.

The man’s clothes were ripped and he sustained a scrape to his back but did not require immediate hospital treatment.

Police have asked anyone who noticed any suspicious activity in the area to contact them at Mahon Road on 0845 600 8000 or phone Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.
