A MAN bit a bouncer leaving a mark on his leg, Coleraine Magistrates Court has been told.

Mark O’Neill (22) is due to be sentenced on November 2 for offences of disorderly behaviour and assault in relation to incidents at The Anchor in Portstewart on December 8 last year.

A prosecutor told Coleraine Magistrates Court, sitting in Ballymena on October 26 that at 12.10am on December 8 last year the defendant had been viewed by doorstaff “taking a swing” at an unknown male in a smoking area.

When restrained the defendant bit one of the bouncers “on the lower left calf leaving a mark”.

The prosecutor said police viewed CCTV which showed a “completely unprovoked attack” on the male in the smoking area by the defendant.

A defence lawyer said the defendant was on two suspended sentences.

District Judge Liam McNally said he would need the defendant, an electrician, present at court for sentencing.

The case involving the defendant, of Denamona Court, Fintona, County Tyrone, was adjourned to November 2.
