Words including ‘lesbo’ and ‘loves women’ were allegedly written in lipstick on the windows of a property in Ballycastle, County Antrim, a court heard on Monday.
The details emerged at Coleraine Magistrates Court where Louise McNeill (30), of Marconi Park, Ballycastle, was charged with breaching a Restraining Order by attending the house where damage was caused.
She was also charged with causing criminal damage to windows, plant pots and mail and the theft of a plant pot.
A prosecutor said they objected to bail.
A police officer said she believed she could connect the accused to the charges.
Outlining her objection to bail the officer said on Sunday July 22 police received a report from a resident that a female was attempting to break into a neighbour’s property.
A picture was taken of a female walking away.
When police arrived an outside water tap was running; a letter had been torn up and a security light had been left hanging.
The officer said graffiti had been written on windows in lip gloss and included the words ‘liar’, ‘scum’, ‘loves women’, ‘lesbo’ and ‘old and lonely’.
Police located McNeill at another address and two lip glosses were seized and a padded jacket similar to that worn by the woman leaving the scene was also observed.
The court was told McNeill had been made the subject of a Restraining Order after appearing in court in June this year and she was not allowed to pester or harass a woman or go within 100 metres of a property.
At Monday’s court, the police officer said the incident on Sunday was the second alleged breach of the Restraining Order since June 21.
District Judge Liam McNally said there was a “real risk of further offences” but added he was prepared to grant bail to an address “far away”.
He released the defendant on her own bail of £500 with a £750 surety banning her from contacting the woman whose house was damaged and excluding the defendant from Ballycastle.
The defendant was told the address has to be approved by police.
The case was adjourned until mid-August.
