Pinned pizza de­liv­ery man against a car dur­ing rob­bery

Bray People - - NEWS -

A solic­i­tor told Bray Dis­trict Court he was con­cerned about a client’s state in court.

‘He may be un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol,’ said Con­way O’Hara on the mat­ter of Pa­trick Moore­house (32), Rocky Val­ley, Kil­macanogue.

Moore­house told Judge Wil­liam Hamill he was fit to pro­ceed and was plead­ing guilty to rob­bery at Quins­boro Road in Bray on March 16.

In­spec­tor De­nis Whe­lan told the court that Moore­house pinned a pizza de­liv­ery man to a car.

His co-ac­cused took piz­zas and €90 while the de­liv­ery man was be­ing ac­costed.

The court heard it was trau­matic for the in­jured party.

Moore­house was ar­rested later and ad­mit­ted the of­fence.

The co-ac­cused has al­ready been be­fore the courts and paid €500 com­pen­sa­tion to the in­jured party. Solic­i­tor Con­way O’Hara said that his client had been drink­ing for a num­ber of days be­fore the in­ci­dent.

He said that his client clearly has a dif­fi­culty with al­co­hol.

Judge Wil­liam Hamill or­dered sim­i­lar com­pen­sa­tion be paid by Moore­house. The case was ad­journed to Fe­bru­ary 12 for pay­ment and a pro­ba­tion re­port with com­mu­nity ser­vice to be con­sid­ered.
