A 74- year- old man and his 19- year- old son have been ac­cused of hold­ing cap­tive a 16- year- old boy and caus­ing him harm.

Michael An­drews ( 74) ap­peared at a spe­cial sit­ting of Done­gal District Court last Wed­nes­day.

An­drews, of Glen­dal­lon, Bal­ly­tiv­nan, Sligo, was ac­cused of false im­pris­on­ment of the boy and as­sault on the teenager caus­ing him harm at the de­fen­dant’s home in Glen­dal­lon on April 23.

Mr Hugh Sheri­dan, State Solic­i­tor said there was no ob­jec­tion to bail but con­di­tions in­cluded no con­tact with the al­leged vic­tim or State wit­nesses, sur­ren­der his pass­port and all travel doc­u­ments, and be avail­able round the clock to gar­dai on a spec­i­fied phone num­ber.
