A 27 year old man has been sentenced to six months imprisonment, suspended for 18 months, after pleading guilty to a number of offences at Newry Magistrates’ Court.

Stoyan Gaytandsier pled guilty to criminal damage, possession of an offensive weapon and assault on police and was also fined £300 fine.

The charges related to an incident in the Newry Street area of Newtownhamilton on Saturday, 25th January.

At 6pm on the day in question, police received a report of an intoxicated male damaging a car with a stick. Response officers attended immediately and located the man in a nearby property.

The man then made his way to the back of the house where he was restrained by police and arrested. One police officer sustained injuries during the incident.
