A DUBLIN youth, who knocked a homeless man unconscious by striking him with a bottle, has been given a five-month sentence.

The man had the back of his head slashed when he was attacked as he was trying to find somewhere to live, the Dublin Children’s Court heard.

The 17-year-old, who expressed no remorse in court, pleaded guilty to assault causing harm at Parnell Street in Dublin city-centre on the afternoon of March 19 last year.
