‘I know where you live’ - threat to shop-keeper

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - NEWS -

A MAN who threat­ened a shop-keeper say­ing ‘I know where you live’ will be jailed if he comes be­fore a court again.

The warn­ing came from Judge James O’Con­nor at Lis­towel Dis­trict Court on Thurs­day - made to Dy­lan Dou­glas, Apart­ment 3, Dick Reidy’s, Col­lege Cross, Lis­towel, af­ter the Court heard how he had as­saulted his next-door neigh­bour and shop owner Char­lie Can­til­lon on Septem­ber 13 last year.

He will have to pay €500 to the Court Poor Box by De­cem­ber 21 next if he wishes to re­main out of jail.

Gardaí told the Court Mr Dou­glas went into Mr Can­til­lon’s Topaz Petrol Sta­tion at 11am on the date. When Mr Can­til­lon saw him he said ‘ Dyaln, you’re barred from here, I want you to leave’, he left but re­turned at 12.30am and en­tered a pri­vate of­fice where Mr Can­til­lon was work­ing alone, and threat­ened him say­ing ‘I know where you live’. Dou­glas pushed his chest up against Mr Can­til­lon - hence the as­sault charge.

So­lic­i­tor Pat En­right said his client was in­tend­ing to threaten him but said ‘I know where you live’ in the con­text of the pair liv­ing along­side each other.

The court heard Mr Dou­glas had 31 pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions, but had set­tled down since 2014 with a part­ner.

“The next time I think you’re gone, [to jail]” Judge O’Con­nor said, re­mand­ing Dy­lan Dou­glas on con­tin­u­ing bail to ap­pear again by De­cem­ber 21 next when the money is due.
