A DUBLIN man has pleaded not guilty to assaulting another man in a row over parking in a taxi space.

Alan Cushen (34) allegedly struck the man, who fell and injured his hand in the incident in the west of the city.

Judge Gerard Jones adjourned the case to a date next year.

Mr Cushen, with an address at Riversdale Road, Clondalkin, is charged with assaulting the man, causing harm.

Defence solicitor Leonard Leader sought a hearing date when the case came before Blanchardstown District Court. He said a facility to view CCTV evidence would be required.

The judge set a hearing date in April 2023 and the accused was remanded on continuing bail.

Previously, the court heard the alleged injured party complained that he was assaulted during a dispute that related to parking in a designated taxi spot at Main Street, Clondalkin on June 19, 2021.

The man told gardaí he was struck by the accused and fell to the ground, suffering three small cuts to his hand and a grazed palm.

The DPP directed that the case could be heard in the district court and a judge accepted jurisdiction.
