A woman in her 40s suffered minor injuries after a piece of broken glass hit her in the face while the attack was being carried out in the Glebeview Park area.

Police said the gang targeted two windows at one property at about 1am on Monday before moving on to another nearby house and smashing two more windows.

They also broke the windscreen and a side window of a car.

The woman, who was hurt during the attack on the second house, is not believed to have required medical treatment for her injuries.

Police said the men ran off towards Upper Mettican Road.

Anyone who witnessed this incident of criminal damage, or who has any further information, has been asked to contact the PSNI on 0845 600 8000.
