Arrests follow car ramming



Have your say

Four men have been arrested following an incident in which a car was allegedly rammed near Lonodnderry.

It is understood the motive relates to a dispute involving the parties.

At around 7pm on Wednesday, May 28, the driver of a white BMW noted two other cars behind him at Ballykelly, a PSNI spokesman said.

“As he drove towards Derry, the other cars, a silver Renault Megane and a black Volkswagen Golf, tried to get in front of him. The BMW driver believes they were trying to stop his car,” the spokesman said.

“At the Broadbridge roundabout, the BMW was struck on its nearside by one of the cars,” he said, adding: “A short time later, police were alerted and arrested four men, all aged between 24 and 29 and from the Ballykelly area. They were later released pending further enquiries.”

Police want to hear from anyone who was on the road and saw events unfold. They are particularly keen to hear again from the driver of another car who spoke briefly to officers last night.

Information can be given on the police non-emergency number 101. Alternatively, it can be provided to the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
