**Takes a real man to gang up three on one woman and using baseball bats. There's something they can be proud of.

Masked gang attack woman in house

A woman has been treated in hospital after being beaten by a gang of masked men who broke into her home in Ballymoney, County Antrim.

Three men forced their way into her house in the Mosside area of Ballymoney at about midnight on Thursday.

They beat her with baseball bats, causing severe bruising to her body.

The gang ransacked the house before escaping in a car in the direction of Armoy. Police are describing the attack as a paramilitary-style assault.

They have appealed for anyone with information concerning the incident to contact them.

Sean Farren, SDLP Assembly member for North Antrim, described the attack as "brutal and horrifying".

"There can be no possible justification for acts like this and there can be no toleration of them either," he said.
