Couple appear over damage to Dublin house

A MAN and woman have appeared in court charged in relation to an incident in south west Dublin in which a garda was allegedly assaulted and damage caused to a house.

Milena Zaremba (23) and Jan Sieczkoski (59), were both remanded on continuing bail at Tallaght District Court.

Zaremba, of Fernwood Park, Springfield, Tallaght, is charged with resisting Garda Roisin Maguire and causing criminal damage to the front door and living room window of a house at Fernwood Avenue on December 26.

Sieczkoski, also of Ferndale Park, is charged with assaulting Garda Maguire and obstructing her at the same time and place.

One of the prosecuting gardai told the court Zaremba, when charged with resisting a garda, replied: "I was resisting because I was afraid, I was pregnant at the time and I didn't know English".

Judge Anthony Halpin adjourned their cases to March 6.
