Two homes are targeted by vandals in racist attack

By Amanda Ferguson

Windows of two homes were smashed and a car was broken into in what police are treating as racist attacks.

Officers are appealing for information following the vandalism in the Mulderg Drive and Garton Way areas of Newtownabbey during the early hours of Monday morning.

Just after 3am, police received a report that three windows had been smashed at a property in Mulderg Drive and the rear window of the family car had also been smashed. A man wearing a dark coloured coat with the hood up and a white scarf covering his face was seen running from the scene.

A short time later, a Garton Way resident reported windows had been smashed at their property.

PSNI Inspector Roy Watton said: "We believe the two incidents which are being treated as hate crimes are connected."

He appealed to anyone with information to contact Antrim Road station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
