Man threat­ened par­ents with a knife

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

A 32-year-old man has been granted bail af­ter threat­en­ing his par­ents dur­ing an al­ter­ca­tion he had with them at their home in St Ju­lian’s.

The ac­cused, Alan Caru­ana, had re­port­edly threat­ened his par­ents with a knife on 12 Oc­to­ber at around 2pm. Fol­low­ing this, Mr Caru­ana’s mother phoned the po­lice and re­quested as­sis­tance. Mr Caru­ana re­port­edly lives and works at ‘Best Garage’ in Birkirkara, where he is self-em­ployed.

He is for­mally ac­cused of caus­ing his par­ents to fear the use of vi­o­lence against them, threat­en­ing them and car­ry­ing a knife with­out a per­mit.

Mag­is­trate Char­maine Galea, pre­sid­ing over the case, is­sued a pro­tec­tion or­der for his par­ents, or­der­ing Mr Caru­ana not to make con­tact with them. Asked about what to do should his par­ents make con­tact with him, the courts ad­vised not to re­spond.

The ac­cused was granted bail against a per­sonal guar­an­tee of €2,000. He was or­dered to sign at the po­lice sta­tion of Birkirkara twice a week, and was also given a cur­few. In ad­di­tion to this, Mr Caru­ana is not per­mit­ted to travel un­til court pro­ceed­ings have con­cluded.
