Woman distraught and heartbroken by car attack

Thursday, 6 April 2017

THE owner of a vehicle which sustained an overnight attack in the Antrim Road area of Ballymena has said she is "completely stunned and heartbroken" by the damage caused to her car.
Charlotte Marron was out of the country for work when the senseless attack occurred between March 26 and 27.
She returned home around 9pm to discover extensive damage to the paintwork of her car.
Speaking to the Guardian, Charlotte said: "I was completely stunned when I saw it to be honest, I had no idea what it was.
“Being 6am, it was dark so I couldn't see very well. I was out of the country that day for work so I didn't actually get to see the damage until I returned home at 9pm.
“I depend heavily on my car for work and for the children in my family. I am struggling to come to terms with it and can't imagine why anybody could get satisfaction out of this.
“I do really hope that anybody who has information comes forward and does the honest thing.
“There was another party involved and, if anything, I want to find who it was to give him peace of mind too.
“The entire situation has left me distraught and heart broken.
“It just proves that you work hard in life to succeed and it can be all taken away in a matter of minutes by some mindless, nasty human."
Police in Ballymena have confirmed they are investigating the incident in question along with another similar incident.
A spokesperson said: "Liquid of some kind was poured over the vehicles causing extensive damage to the paintwork.
“Police are urging people with any information to make contact with police and quote 216 27/03/17 or 240 27/03/17."
