Robbery accused released on bail

A man accused of robbery has been banned from leaving the Rosemount area as part of his bail conditions.

John Robert Curry, whose address was given on court papers as Great James Street, is charged with robbery and causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

The charges relate to an alleged incident in the Argyle Street area of the city on July 14, last year.

Police opposed bail on the grounds that Curry may commit further offences, breach bail or intimdate the alleged injured party.

However, defence solicitor Seamus Quigley told the court his client has been on remand since the date of offence and would agree to any conditions of bail the court felt were appropriate.

District Judge Barney McElholm released Curry on his own bail of £1000, with a surety of £900 and banned him from leaving the Rosemount area.
