A Keady man who assaulted two members of staff at a local Chinese takeaway whilst intoxicated will be sentenced in the New Year.
Court heard that one of the victims of the 41-year-old had been just 17 at the time, whilst the other was a foreign national.
Seamus Gerard McGeown, of Fairgreen Avenue, pleaded guilty to two counts of common assault and disorderly behaviour at Armagh Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.
As he entered the plea, defence solicitor Chris Rafferty commented: “This could be a case that would benefit from a PSR (pre-sentence report).”
District Judge Paul Copeland asked the prosecution what relationship if any there was between the injured parties and the defendant.
She replied: “There is no connection, Mr McGeown entered the Golden Gate Chinese in Keady whilst intoxicated and had an altercation with two members of staff.”
It was outlined that one of the injured parties had been just 17 at the time, whilst the other was a foreign national.
Prosecution commented: “This was a thoroughly unsavoury incident but thankfully there were no injuries.”
District Judge Copeland ordered a pre-sentence report in the case and McGeown was released on bail to appear on January 14 for sentencing.
