18-year-old woman attacked with metal pole by three men in Belfast
The woman is currently in hospital with a broken ankle.
PSNI detectives are appealing for information following an assault in north Belfast on Tuesday night (25 January).
“Shortly after 8pm we received a report that an 18-year-old woman had been assaulted by three men in the Manor Street area," Detective Sergeant Ash said.
“The woman was dragged from the property, kicked and hit to the head with a weapon then beaten with what is believed to have been a metal pole.
“She was taken to hospital where she is currently receiving treatment for a broken ankle.
“Three men, aged 19, 23 and 24 were arrested a short time later on suspicion of a number of offences including grievous bodily harm with intent. They remain in police custody at this time.
"This was a vicious beating and there is absolutely no justification for this type of savage attack.
"We are working to establish a motive and I would appeal to anyone who may have witnessed the attack or who may have dash-cam footage, to contact detectives on 101 quoting reference 1374 of 25/01/22.”
A report can be submitted online using the non-emergency reporting form via the PSNI website.
