Two police officers have sustained injuries after a vehicle failed to stop in the early hours of this morning Sunday October 1st on the Concession Road, Crossmaglen.

Inspector McCormick said: “At around 12.20am local neighbourhood officers, who were conducting proactive patrols, attempted to stop a car, a grey coloured Audi A6. The vehicle failed to stop and as a result the police vehicle sustained damage to the front injuring the two officers onboard, we are thankful they did not require hospital treatment. We believe that the vehicle crossed over the border.

“This type of reckless and cowardly behaviour places members of the public and our officers at risk of serious harm and we are lucky not to be dealing with more serious injuries.

“I am appealing to anyone who may have the grey Audi A6 in the area, or who may have any information as to the driver or dash-cam footage that could assist with enquiries, to contact police via 101 quoting reference number 32 01/10/23.”
