Police investigating the dropping of masonry on a female officer during serious riots in north Belfast have released a picture of a man they want to speak to in connection with the incident.
Friday, 20 August 2010
The young officer was injured when masonry was dropped on her from the top of a building in the Ardoyne area on 12 July.
She had to be shielded by her colleagues as she received medical treatment at the scene.
The detective in charge of the investigation said he was hopeful the man in question could assist with his enquiries, but added that there were "indications" he may not be living in Northern Ireland.
"The officer in question was extremely fortunate to escape serious injury," Detective Chief Inspector Alan Little said.
"The behaviour of those responsible can only be described as reckless and dangerous and it is in everybody's interest that they are brought before the courts."
He added: "The public response to our media appeals has been outstanding so far and I am seeking their help again to identify this individual."
Police are asking anyone with information about the individual pictured - or anyone they know to have been involved in the Ardoyne disturbances - to contact detectives in the Public Enquiry Team on 028 90 259232 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
