Former heroin addict broke into his ex-girlfriend’s home
BREAK-IN ‘IT’S JUST ME’ SAID MAN TO TERRIFIED EX-GIRLFRIEND
‘IT’S JUST ME. It’s Terry,’ a 22year-old man told his terrified exgirlfriend through a locked bathroom door after he broke into her home.
Terry Carr of 3 Ballywaltrim Cottages, Bray, pleaded guilty to tresspass at 17 Monastery Grove in Enniskerry on November 14 last year.
The court heard Carr climbed through a window into the house of his former girlfriend when a member of her family saw him and then ran with his ex-girlfriend into the bathroom and locked the door.
When they called out and asked who it was he said; ‘It’s just me. It’s Terry.’
They called the gardaí and told him to leave which he did.
The gardaí stopped Carr later and he admitted to the entering the house.
The Defence Solicitor, Mr. Joe Maguire, told the court Carr had just broken up with the girl after five years and he didn’t really believe that it was over.
Carr has also suffered a drug induced psychosis which he hasn’t fully recovered from but has received treatment for and he has spent much of the past year in hospital.
‘I was a heroin addict for four years your honour,’ Carr told Judge Murrough Connellan.
The Judge adjourned the matter to November 16 to see if he comes to the attention of gardaí again.
He also requested for a medical report to be produced on that date.
