A 19-years-old man who assaulted someone by throwing a bottle at them has had a four month sentence suspended for 18 months.

Dean Elliott, of Rose Court, admittedthe lesser charge of disorderly behaviour because the injured party declined to make a complaint.

The incident occurred in the Shipquay Street area on December 22, last year.

Derry Magistate’s Court heard the defendant remembers throwing a bottle at someone he believed was intimidating him on the night in question.
