A gang wearing balaclavas has attacked a house in Bangor in what police are treating as a sectarian hate crime.

Windows were smashed and paint was thrown at the property in Bloomfield Court at 11.30pm on Monday night

Four adults and an 11 month old baby were home at the time of the incident.

Inspector Davy Lindsay said: “We are treating this incident as a hate crime and would appeal to anyone who may have any information to contact police in Newtownards on the non-emergency number 101 quoting reference 1467 22/05/17.

Or, alternatively 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.”
