Police said investigators have been told a man and woman were standing outside an address on Inkerman Street just before 7.30pm when an unknown man approached them without speaking and hit the 22-year-old man and cut the 25-year-old woman on the shoulder and cheek with an unknown object before walking away.

The woman has been taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries, the man was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

The couple was a brother and sister. Reports stated that security had been heightened during Shavuot.
