“My thoughts and sympathies are with the victims of this attack, which was no doubt a terrifying ordeal, and I hope they are getting all the help and support they need at this difficult time.


“I would also like to thank the emergency services who responded swiftly and professionally to this incident, ensuring the two victims who were within the property at the time of the attack were thankfully left physically unharmed, despite being badly shaken.


“It is vital that everyone across our community feels safe in their homes, and that those who show such a severe lack of respect for the rule of law are held accountable for their actions.


"I would urge anyone with any relevant information on this incident to report it to the PSNI via 101 or anonymously via Crimestoppers, quoting reference number 1806.”
