Police have appealed for witnesses after a couple and their three-month-old baby escaped injury after a petrol bomb was thrown at their home in Antirm.
A 76-year-old man was also in the house when the attack happened in the early hours of Tuesday morning in the Rathkyle area.
Shortly after midnight it was reported that a petrol bomb was thrown at a house in the area. Scorch damage was caused to the back door of the property. A brick was also thrown through a window.
No one was injured at the time of the incident, however the occupants were left very badly shaken.
Alliance councillor Neil Kelly said: “This was a disgraceful attack on a family home and I must condemn those responsible.
“The outcome could have been much worse and we must be thankful no-one was seriously injured.
“This type of behaviour is not welcome in Antrim and I must appeal to anyone with information to contact the PSNI as soon as possible. Those responsible must be apprehended before they have the opportunity to target others.”
Police would ask anyone who may have witnessed this incident or anyone who has any information to contact them at Antrim Police Station on 0845 600 8000.
Or, if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details, they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.
