Family escapes injury in Ballymena petrol bomb attack
Four people, including an 11-year-old boy, have escaped injury after a petrol bomb attack in Ballymena.
The petrol bomb was thrown at a house in Alfred Street Place at about 03:45 BST on Friday.
A window in the house was smashed and scorch damage caused to an exterior wall.
"This attack has caused a great deal of shock to the family involved and the wider community of Ballymena," DUP MLA Paul Frew said.
"Thankfully nobody was injured in this attack, but we could have a very different story emerging from this area today."
Police have appealed for anyone with any information about the attack to contact them.
