As­sault case is ad­journed

Bray People - - NEWS -

A de­fen­dant be­fore Thurs­day’s sit­ting of Bray Dis­trict Court is ac­cused of as­sault­ing a per­son who re­fused to give him his mo­bile phone.

Stephen McLough­lin, 26 Shanganagh Woods, Shankill, is al­leged to have ap­proached a group of peo­ple sit­ting in Shanganagh Woods at 7 p.m. on July 10 and de­manded one of the group hand over their mo­bile phone.

After the owner of the phone re­fused, McLough­lin is ac­cused of kick­ing and punch­ing the vic­tim in the face. He is also al­leged to have landed another blow to the vic­tim’s face after he fell to the ground.

Ini­tially in the case it was re­ported that the vic­tim had suf­fered a fa­cial frac­ture but a sec­ond med­i­cal re­port was able to clar­ify that no frac­ture oc­curred.

On Novem­ber 5 0f this year, McLough­lin was stopped on Quinns­boro Road, Bray, and was found to be in pos­ses­sion of two knives and a ham­mer to break glass. He also had €200 in his pos­ses­sion, a UPS key and a breast can­cer char­ity key.

Judge Wil­liam Early put both mat­ters back to Jan­uary 5 2015.
