Bangor Attack

Police urge the community to let them do their job after a vicious attack on a 16 year old child in Bangor at the weekend
We hear about crime very day of our lives . So much so that we become sanitised to it. But something happened in Bangor this weekend that none of us should become immune to. 
A young girl was repeatedly punched in the face by another woman while lying on the ground. The attacker lifted the girls head by the hair and smashed it against the concrete ground three times.Then the girl was dragged along the ground by her hair again. A man rushed over and poured a bottle of liquid into her face, while she lay huddled up. While using her hands to protect her face from the punches, she was kicked hard in the ribs. 
A senior loyalist contacted Stephen - he said
"Even hardened people who have killed people have said to me they were absolutely disturbed watching it. If Police don't deal with this how can they expect that the Community won't." 
Well, the police are dealing with it. Three people are due in court this morning charged in connection with the attack.
