Woman 'hurt in phone attack'

A MAN has denied throwing a mobile phone at a woman, hitting her on the face during an altercation.

Wayne Kelly (26), of Neilstown Crescent and Grangeview Road, both Clondalkin, has denied before Blanchardstown District Court that he seriously assaulted a woman.

The alleged attack took place at Melville Terrace, Finglas, last August 24.

Gda Sgt Maria Callaghan previously said it will be alleged that the phone hit the woman in the face, leaving her with a cut on her chin.

Judge David McHugh adjourned the matter to a date in June.

SUPERVISOR ON THEFT CHARGES

A COMMUNITY employment scheme supervisor has been charged with stealing cheques from her Dublin workplace.

Carol Hutton (42) allegedly took cheques worth just under €900 over the course of four months at the Northside Partnership.

She was remanded on continuing bail when she appeared at Dublin District Court on theft charges.

Hutton, of Cromcastle Road, Coolock, is charged with three counts of stealing from the Northside Partnership, Bunratty Road, Coolock, between February 25 and June 16, 2011.

Judge Cormac Dunne accepted jurisdiction to deal with the case at district court level and adjourned the case to May 9.

WOMAN ADMITS SYRINGE ATTACK

A WOMAN jabbed two employees in a supermarket with a blood-filled syringe, then broke her ankle as she leapt from the window of a nearby store, a court heard.

Christina Joyce (26), of Cedar House, Marlborough Street, was "out of her head on snow blow" in Marks and Spencer, Mary Street, last December 13.

She injured her ankle when she jumped from the ground floor window of Arnott's department store.

Joyce pleaded guilty at Dublin District Court to assault charges in the incident. Judge Cormac Dunne adjourned the case for a week.
