Man accused of attempted murder is released on bail

1 Mins read

A MAN accused of attempted murder after an alleged stabbing incident involving a ‘steak knife’ has been released on bail.

A man aged in his 40s required keyhole surgery after being stabbed during an incident at Blackthorn Court in Coleraine around 11.30pm on July 3 this year.

The man accused in connection with the case – Gary Moore (31), with an address listed as Greenmount Avenue in Coleraine, had been on remand charged with attempted murder; possession of an offensive weapon – a knife; assaulting a woman and damaging a window and kitchen light.
At Coleraine Magistrates Court on September 30, defence solicitor Garrett Greene said a bail address was now available in the Derry/Londonderry area.

A police officer objected to bail saying there was a fear the defendant would commit further offences as he was one of a number of people in Northern Ireland deemed to be “highly likely to cause serious harm”.

The court was told the defendant has 20 convictions including three serious assaults and two involving offensive weapons.

The officer said the current charges related to a “serious incident”.

The officer added that due to his record it was feared there was a “risk of flight”.

Mr Greene said the woman who was allegedly assaulted had made a statement of withdrawal.
When Moore first appeared at court in connection with the charges the lawyer said he had “significant facial injuries”.

District Judge Peter King released the defendant on £500 bail with a £500 surety with a 7.30pm-7am curfew when he will be electronically tagged.

He is to have no contact with anyone connected to the case and he is excluded from the Coleraine and Portstewart areas with exceptions like attending court.

He has to report to Strand Road Police Station daily and is not allowed to drink alcohol.
The case was adjourned to October 28.
