Man says he didn’t threaten wife with a knife
A HEROIN addict accused of holding his wife at knifepoint on Bray’s Boghall Road on Monday afternoon will appear before the town’s District Court tomorrow (Thursday).
Myles Connors, with an address at The Bungalow, Blessington Road, Tallaght, appeared before Judge Murrough Connellan at Wicklow District Court yesterday (Tuesday) charged with breaching a protection order at Boghall Road on February 23, 2009.
Garda Sheridan said that when he arrested Connors at 9.25 p.m. on Monday and charged him with the breach, he replied, ‘I didn’t threaten anyone with a knife.’
Garda Sheridan looked for a remand in custody until Thursday saying that during the incident Connors had allegedly assaulted his wife and held her at knifepoint in the car.
The guard said he had the knife in court but didn’t produce it.
A solicitor from the firm of Kevin Tunny represented Connors in court and said he would be pleading not guilty and applied for bail on Connor’s behalf.
Connors, a recovering heroin addict, said he had met his wife in Shankill on Monday but denied assaulting her.
‘It wasn’t an incident, it was a few words,’ he told Judge Connellan.
