A MAN who kicked and punched a female at Bath Street in Portrush has been jailed for three months.
Sean Doyle (27), whose address was given as no fixed abode in Coleraine, committed the offence on September 9 this year.
At Coleraine Magistrates Court, sitting in Ballymena on Monday, the defendant pleaded guilty to charges of assault, disorderly behaviour and obstruction of a police officer.
A prosecutor said there had been CCTV footage of the incident.
A defence lawyer said the defendant had already spent the equivalent of a four and a half months sentence on remand in custody.
After being given a three months jail term, the defendant told District Judge Peter King he wished to “apologise”.
