Detectives in Banbridge are making a specific appeal to two people they believe can assist with an ongoing investigation.

Detective Sergeant Melanie McGrory said: “We would like to speak to a couple who were flagged down by a distressed woman in the Newry Street area of Banbridge during the early hours of Friday 31 July.

The couple, who were not known to the woman, offered her a lift, taking her in their car to Gilford and to the care of people she knew.

As part of our investigation into a report of an assault on this woman elsewhere in Banbridge earlier that night, we would like to speak to the couple who took her to Gilford. I would ask them to please call us on the non-emergency number 101.”
