Drogheda Independent - - NEWS - By HU­BERT MUR­PHY

A LO­CAL dog walker was left shaken af­ter a man threat­ened to ‘cut his throat’ dur­ing an in­ci­dent close to the Glen at Yel­low­bat­ter on Hal­loween night.

Paul Lamb was out walk­ing with his dog, a three­year old German Shep­herd called ‘Axel’ when he was set upon.

He came home late from work and took his dog for a walk.

He was re­turn­ing to his car when he no­ticed some­one try­ing to break the glass in it.

The young man, aged be­tween 19 and 21, claimed the car was his and a con­fronta­tion en­sued.

Mr Lamb’s dog was muz­zled, but tried to help its owner as the other man threat­ened to cut Mr Lamb’s throat, reach­ing into his pocket.

The shocked dog owner ran into the street and called for help and a number of lo­cal res­i­dents came to his as­sis­tance.

The man left the scene and Mr Lamb was able to drove home, very shaken by his or­deal.

Mr Lamb re­ported the in­ci­dent to gardai later in the week.
