Police checkpoint night

An arson attack on a Co Armagh house could have ended in fatalities, police have said.

Last Sunday night, September 16, there was an attack on a house in Albert Street in Lurgan.

An object was lit and thrown at a house, smashing a bedroom window.

A PSNI spokesperson said: “Thankfully, the object didn’t end up inside the house. Had it done so, we could be looking at fatalities.

“Whoever is responsible has not only no regard for the life of the victim, but has no regard for any life in that street.

“Sleeping children, sleeping elderly…this could have been horrendous.”

“If you know who is responsible or know anything about the incident, call us on 101. The incident number is 239 of 17/09/18.”
