Bricks and paint were thrown at a house in the Moygashel area of Dungannon in the early hours of Monday morning, in a suspected racist attack.

Police said the attack happened in the Bleachfield Park area.

The latest attack comes after a sign was erected in Moygashel at the start of the new year, which read: “Attention Landlords, leasing property to foreign nationals will not be tolerated.”

A PSNI spokesperson said: “It was reported that white paint and bricks had been thrown at a property and police are keen to speak to anyone who noticed any suspicious activity in the area to come forward.

“Police enquiries are continuing, however one line of enquiry is that this may have been a hate-related crime.”

The spokesperson added: “Anyone who can help police with their enquiries is asked to contact them, quoting reference 1408280214. Alternatively information about crime can be passed via the independent

Crimestoppers number on 0800 555 111.”
