Bray People - - News -

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.
