“We are in the initial stages of the investigation and in the process of carrying out enquiries locally.

“We would urge anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the area around 11.30pm on Tuesday night or the days prior to the incident to contact us. I suspect that there is someone who may well know who is responsible or perhaps heard a rumour to which could be linked to this incident.
