Sec­tar­ian at­tack on ill pen­sion­ers

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News - BY SARAH SCOTT

TWO frail pen­sion­ers have been tar­geted in a sec­tar­ian at­tack on their home.

The cou­ple, who are aged 79 and 76, were in their kitchen in Cas­tledaw­son, Co Derry, on Fri­day when a rock was thrown through the bed­room with a note at­tached.

Their daugh­ter told the Mirror: “My fa­ther has sec­ondary cancer and my mum has such poor mo­bil­ity that she can­not get out. They are shocked and do not want to stay in their home.”

The DUP’s Rev Wil­liam McCrea told the BBC it was “a bru­tal sec­tar­ian at­tack”. He added: “The el­derly cou­ple were at home and a boul­der was thrown through the win­dow. They’re an el­derly cou­ple and are re­ally shaken.”
