Sword attack in West Belfast…

A truly bizarre not to mention frightening attack in West Belfast, when a man discovered his stolen car in the Dungloe Crescent area he was attacked by a ‘swordsman’ who chased him and his friend to his friend’s car nearby. One radio report described the attacker as having white powder around his nose and mouth. One of the two victims sustained facial injuries when the attacker tried to smash through the windscreen to get at them.
