Brick lands in cot of baby in Antrim 'hate crime'


Police in Antrim have described as a 'hate crime' an incident in which a brick landed in a baby's cot after it was thrown through a window.

Two windows in the house in Tarragon Park in Antrim were smashed just before 2.30am this morning.

Luckily, even though a brick landed in a cot, a one-year-old baby escaped injury as the parents had the child in their bed as it was ill.

PSNI Sgt John Hamilton told the BBC: "These reckless actions could have caused serious injury had this not been the case."

The family are from eastern Europe and police are investigating the incident as a hate crime.
