Woman told police her boyfriend threw a knife at her but it missed

1 Mins read

A COURT heard that a woman told police her then boyfriend “beat the sh*t” out of her and had thrown a knife at her which missed.

At Coleraine Magistrates Court on Monday, Nathan Larmour (19), with an address listed as Garden Mews in Cookstown but formerly of Mount Street Mews in Coleraine, was sentenced after previously pleading guilty to assault.

A prosecutor said police arrived to the sound of shouting on August 3 last year and the complainant was sitting on steps and said her then boyfriend Larmour had “beat the sh*t” out of her and had thrown a knife at her but it missed.

Larmour had no top on, was shouting and was sweating profusely.

Previously, a defence barrister said said there was a “minor dispute” as to the exact facts surrounding the assault.

He said the defendant admitted grabbing his then partner by the head very forcefully.

At the March 23 court the defendant was given a three months jail term, suspended for 18 months, and ordered not to harass the victim for two years.
