This morning we bring you – the newsletter readers – a first look at a story we have been working on this week. We spoke to Lee Ann Dreyer, who lost her son Jake following an unprovoked assault in Portadown almost two years ago. A recent incident in Dungannon prompted Lee Ann to reach out to us. It was a reminder – a painful one – that more can and should be done on our streets...
The grieving mother of a young man who died after an unprovoked attack on a night out in Portadown has pleaded for more to be done to make our town centres safer.
Lee Ann Dreyer, who lost her son Jake Bailey-Sloan in October 2021, was speaking to Armagh I in the aftermath of another sickening incident on our streets.
Earlier this month, video footage circulated on social media of a teenage boy being attacked during a brawl on Irish Street in Dungannon.
Living her own nightmare on a daily basis, Lee Ann spoke of how seeing the story on Armagh I highlighted the need for stronger action to prevent incidents like this from happening.
Jake, who was just 23-years-old, when he died following an attack in Portadown town centre. His life support machine was turned off the following evening.
Lee Ann, speaking to Armagh I, says in the intervening two years not enough has been done to make Portadown – or any of our towns – safer. Read her story here.
