Mark Laurence Woods (44), of Parklea in Portstewart, is alleged to have committed the offences on September 24 this year.

On the same date he is charged with three counts of possessing articles with blades in a public place – Riverside Retail Park – a machete-type knife; a knife and three ‘Stanley-type blades’.

Another charge sheet, which listed his address as Silverthorn Avenue in Coleraine, accuses him of possessing an article in a public place – a lock knife – at The Diamond in Portstewart on April 11 this year.
