Two hurt in separate attacks in Ballynahinch

A 22-year-old woman and a 36-year-old man have been injured in unconnected assaults in Ballynahinch, County Down.

Police were called to Hillcrest Drive at about 04:30 BST, following a report that two men were attacking the woman.

She was taken to hospital and officers arrested two 22-year-old men. One was released unconditionally and the other was released pending a PPS report.

The 36-year-old man was assaulted at a bus stop in Windmill Street. He was taken to hospital with a head injury.

A PSNI spokeswoman said his condition was described as stable.

Detectives have appealed for information about both attacks but said that at this stage, they do not believe the two assaults are linked.
