Beattie urges community to help catch Peatlands Park rapist

Ulster Unionist Upper Bann candidate, Doug Beattie MC,  has called on the entire community to help Police catch the man responsible for raping a woman as she walked her dog in Peatlands Park on Wednesday afternoon.

Councillor Beattie MC said:

“My thoughts are with the victim at this very traumatic time.  

“The entire community will be united in its disgust at the news that a woman should be the victim of such a brutal assault. The fact that it took place in broad daylight and in a park which is widely used by families serves to compound the horror.

“The Police have said that the attacker fled the scene on a black mountain bike and have appealed for anyone who can assist them to come forward immediately. I would echo that call. This is clearly a very dangerous individual who must be caught immediately and put behind bars where he can no longer pose a threat to women.”
