Man with broken nose withdraws complaint
A man who suffered a broken nose in an assault withdrew his complaint at Sligo District Court.
Philip Kilcullen told Judge Kevin Kilrane that he had not been approached by anyone or was not put under any pressure to withdraw his complaint of assault against Nathaniel Kelly (34) of 70 Jinks’ Avenue.
Kelly was accused of assault causing harm to Mr Kilcullen at HMV Sound Garden, Kempten Promenade on April 23rd 2017.
Inspector Paul Kilcoyne put it to Mr Kilcullen that he had made a complaint to Gardaí that he had been assaulted and that his nose had been broken.
Mr Kilcullen agreed he had complained but said his nose hadn’t been broken, that it had been “just pushed to the left a bit.”
Inspector Kilcoyne said he was in possession of a medical report which outlined how there was a deviation in the nose and that a bone had been broken. Mr Kilcullen said he was happy to shake hands with Kelly and move on. “He has a business and a young child,” said Mr Kilcullen.
The case was dismissed by Judge Kevin Kilrane.
