Two men escape petrol bomb attack in County Antrim

A PETROL BOMB was thrown at a residence on the Parkhall Road on Friday night.

A large stone was thrown at a front window to break the surface before an explosive device was thrown at a window at 11.30pm.

According to Belfast Telegraph, two men sitting in the living room at the time of the incident were not injured in the incident but were left in a state of shock.

Detective Miller of the PSNI said the incident was being investigated as arson: "When officers arrived at the scene, along with colleagues from the NI Fire and Rescue Service, we found that the object had partially exploded outside the property.


The PSNI appealed for anyone with information to contact them with the arson incident: "We are treating this as arson with intent to endanger life and are following a number of lines of enquiry.

"However, we would appeal to anyone who has any information or saw suspicious activity in the local area in the time leading up to the incident, to contact us on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 1620 of 18/5/18."
