"Violence against women and girls is completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated in our society. I would encourage anyone who has ever experienced any form of abuse to come forward and report to Police at www.psni.police.uk/report or phone 101 or 999 in an emergency. We take every report seriously and will robustly investigate all reports."
