Attempted Hammer Attack on Local Man

A local resident reported that she received a telephone call from someone in Ridge Road, Sandyford last night to say that a gang of youths had been seen chasing a man down Ridge Road trying to attack him with a hammer, bat and length of innertube etc.

The Police were called on 999 and it took 23 minutes for them to arrive as they were waiting for a unit with a taser.

When will this end has someone got to be seriously injured, also I thought the Police have a duty of care to protect.

They need to be stopped before someone gets hurt, or takes things into there own hands. What a waste of police resource on a Saturday night.
