The car of a Turkish barber has been smashed along with the windows of his shop in Ballynahinch.

It happened at Ibo's Turkish Barbers in the Main Street area on Sunday August 21 just after 10.10pm.

It was reported to police that the windows of a barber shop and a car were damaged by two men.

Officers are not treating it as a hate crime at this time.

The barber's shop has only been open for around seven months.

The owner has lived in Northern Ireland for the past two-and-a-half-years.

Maria Anfin, the partner of Ibo's worker colleague said he had just popped out to get food when it happened.

She said: "He's still opening at the minute and is allowing customers to come in.

"Everything inside is absolutely fine, it was just the windows and his car."

Anyone with any information about this is asked to contact Downpatrick Police Station on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 1281 of 21/08/16.

Or 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.
