Limerick teenager to stand trial for robbery and assault with poker

Judge Mary Larkin remanded the accused in continuing custody until next week

A YOUNG man who is accused of assaulting a woman with a poker late last year is to stand trial at the circuit court.

Caylum O’Dwyer, 19, of Abbeyvale, Corbally, Limerick is also accused of robbing a car, worth €20,000, from the woman last December.

All of the offences are alleged to have happened at a house in Cappamore on December 23, last.

At Limerick District Court on Tuesday, Garda Stephen Kelleher said the defendant made no reply when the robbery charge and weapons charge were put to him.

Sergeant Sean Murray told Judge Mary Larkin the DPP has directed trial on indictment and he requested an adjournment to facilitate the preparation of a book of evidence.

A charge under the Road Traffic Act was withdrawn on the instructions of the DPP.

Mr O’Dywer, who was previously refused bail, was remanded in continuing custody until next week.
