Police launch investigation into Christmas Day 'serious assault' on Larne woman

Police have launched an investigation into reports of a serious assault on a woman in the Larne area in the early hours of Christmas morning 2018.

The incident was reported at around 1am on Christmas morning and is believed to have occurred sometime between midnight and 12.45am in the Killyglen Link/Lindara area.

Detective Constable Curry appealed for a driver who gave the woman a lift to get in touch.

"I am appealing to anyone who has information that could assist with the investigation, or who saw any suspicious activity in the area that morning, to get in touch," he said.

"I am particularly keen to hear from the driver of a vehicle who gave the female a lift from the Old Glenarm Road area of Larne a short time before the incident, in case they may have any information that can help our enquiries.

"Please get in touch on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 72 of 25/12/18.  Information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime."
