A Banbridge man has appeared before the local court charged with common assault and attempted criminal damage.

David Stephen Lyness (46) from Rathview appeared before the local court last week, when he was connected to the charges by a PSNI Constable.

He is charged with assaulting Ryan Hillis and attempting to damage his white Rover car on 29 August. The case was adjourned for two weeks and Lyness was bailed on £500 with a condition not to contact Ryan Hillis.
