Allegations man 'manhandled' elderly woman in 'broad daylight' in a Co Kildare town
14:00 Thursday 19th of October 2017

A man who could be facing allegations involving the 'manhandling' of a elderly woman in a Co Kildare town has been refused a passport to visit his young  daughter for Christmas.

The 24-year-old  accused, who speaks Russian, and has an address in Co Kildare, appeared before Naas District Court, yesterday, on a single charge of obstructing a Garda on July 2, 2017, at Naas Garda Station.

In court, yesterday, Judge Desmond Zaidan referred to pending allegations that an elderly woman was 'manhandled' in 'broad daylight.'

An application to give him his passport back got objections  by Inspector Oliver Henry.

Defence Solicitor, Conal Boyce said: "He has a nine year old daughter who would like to see him at Christmas time."

The court heard how the accused spent a month in custody before applying for bail and being granted it.

Judge Desmond Zaidan refused the application to allow him have his passport back to visit his daughter.

The accused has been ordered to reappear before Naas District Court on January 2, 2018, for DPP directions.

A Russian translator will be needed, ordered Judge Zaidan.
