“This was a nasty attack on the victim and we do believe others in the area may have seen what happened and the person responsible.

“We understand the impact of an incident like this on the victim and their families so will always do everything in our power to find those responsible.

“I want to ask anyone who may have any information on what happened, saw anything, or was in the area at the time to get in touch with us.”
