Published 28/10/2015

A workman reportedly had a suspected firearm pointed at him before a man tried to stab him through the letterbox of a house he was working at in Craigavon.

The incident happened at around 12.40pm on Tuesday October 27 in the Drumgor Heights area.

It was reported that a man answered a knock to the door of a house he was working in and was confronted by a man who pointed a suspected firearm at the man and threatened him.

The man forced the door shut in an attempt to stop him entering the house.

The man attempted to force his way in to the house before attempting to stab the man with a large knife through the letterbox in the door.

The man is described as wearing a blue/grey fleece type hooded top, blue jeans and gloves. He made off on foot and the man was not physically injured as a result of the incident.

A 34-year-old man was arrested in the area later yesterday afternoon and is currently in custody assisting police with their enquiries.

Detective Sergeant Colin Patterson is appealing for anyone who witnessed this incident or anyone with any information about the incident to contact Detectives in Lurgan on the non-emergency number 101. Information can also be passed anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
