The man had wounds to his neck, face and abdomen, but his injuries are not thought to be life threatening at this time.

Speaking on the issue Upper Bann DUP MLA Carla Lockhart said, “This is a very alarming turn of events in what is a quiet area.  I would condemn any such attack and would call on anyone with any information to come forward to the PSNI and report it on 101.  I am aware that a 69-year-old man was subsequently arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, possession of an offensive weapon and wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm.  It is vital that any local information or witnesses come forward to ensure that those responsible face the rigours of the law."
