Commenting on social media, Sgt McIlroy said: “Parents, talk of an arranged fight this weekend involving youths from Carrick and Larne. We won’t be allowing them to cause a disturbance or ruin the weekend for locals. If you can’t keep hold of them this weekend, you can be sure we will.”
The appeal was issued following an incident close to Carrick Train Station last weekend.
Sgt McIlroy stated: “Last Saturday evening we got reports of a fight ongoing near Carrick Train station - Were you involved in this bust up?
