A Fb publish warns that two individuals in Newry, Northern Eire, are pretending to be homeless earlier than attacking members of the general public, and claims that they stabbed a girl. This isn’t true.
The publish states: “Everybody in Newry is being warned to be alert and vigilant. These 2 go round claiming to be homeless, in search of assist, then they assault you. They’re on the run and they’re very harmful. They attacked a 34 12 months outdated single mother with a knife 4 days in the past leaving her struggling for her life. When you see them please report back to the police and watch out.”
That is pretend. Full Truth may discover no stories of a stabbing in Newry involving a 34-year-old lady in current weeks, and we’ve contacted the native Police Service of Northern Eire station to substantiate that is the case.
Full Truth used Google reverse picture search to establish the pictures, which seem like unrelated to the claims. One of many pictures seems to have been taken in England, and the opposite in New Zealand, with the latter no less than 4 years outdated.
Different equally worded posts warning of criminals pretending to be homeless earlier than attacking individuals have been shared broadly on Fb.
