Sinn Fein MP Paul Maskey condemned the stabbing as "absolutely reprehensible"

“These actions have no place in society, particularly at a time when our health service and community are fighting back against a resurgent Covid-19," he added.

"I would urge anyone with information about this incident to bring it immediately to the PSNI."
