Man in hospital after punishment attack

A man is recovering in hospital today after what detectives described as a punishment-style attack.

Three masked assaulted the 25-year-old in his home in Co Tyrone before they fled, leaving him with injuries to his arms and legs.

The PSNI said the attack happened in the Carlton Drive area of Strabane at about 9pm last night.

The victim was taken to hospital for treatment.

Detectives have appealed for witnesses to contact them.
