Three men - believed to be family members - injured in knife attack in Glengormley


Three men who are believed to be members of the same family have been injured in a knife attack in Glengormley.

On Wednesday night a 20-year-old man sustained a serious cut to his forehead after he was attacked with a knife at a house on Antrim Road at around 11pm.

A 51-year-old man and a 74-year-old man sustained cuts to their hands after they were chased from the property by the suspect and attacked close to a local petrol station.

An 18-year-old man was arrested at the scene by responding officers and remains in custody this morning.

Detective Sergeant John McKendry said: “We believe this incident started at an address before moving a short distance down the road to the garage. This is a busy area and we are keen to speak with witnesses or anyone with information that could assist the investigation. Detectives can be contacted at the offices of Newtownabbey Reactive and Organised Crime by calling 101.

"If someone would prefer to provide information without giving their name they can contact the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.”
