13-year-old girl stabbed in Lisnaskea

Police are treating a serious incident in Lisnaskea last night as attempted murder.
A woman and a girl were stabbed during what was described as a “terrifying ordeal” when a group of men forced their way into a house in Trasna Way wielding machetes. The teenage girl remains in a critical condition as detectives hunt those responsible.
Detective Sgt Keith Monaghan said: “Police received a report at around 9.15pm that a number of males, armed with machetes, had forced entry to a house and attacked two female occupants. A 13-year-old girl sustained serious stab wounds as a result and was taken to hospital where she remains in critical but stable condition. A 41-year-old woman was also treated for stab wounds to her leg but has since been discharged from hospital.”
He added: “This must have been a terrifying ordeal for those involved and we are determined to find the men responsible. We have several lines of enquiry which we are progressing at this time but I would ask anyone with information or who noticed any suspicious activity in the area to contact detectives in Enniskillen and pass the information on.”
Anyone who can help is urged to call 101 and quote reference number 1650 16/11/19. Alternatively call Crimestoppers on 1800 555 111.
