“The investigation has been progressing and we have had one man in custody as a result of our enquiries so far.

“However, we still have lots more to do and I want to make it clear that we will not stop here.

“We are still appealing for the public to come forward. Please contact us immediately if you know who did this or anyone you believe to be involved.
