Inspector Browne said: “Officers received a report on Saturday morning, 4th May that a number of windows had been broken at two properties in the Brookfield Mill area of the town.

“It was also reported a woman was assaulted in one of the properties and sustained a head injury.

“A white coloured car was understood to have left the scene and the suspect vehicle was located by police this morning in the Dromore area.
