Teen 'beat and stabbed man'
a DUBLIN teenager has been refused bail after he was charged with mugging a 57-year-old man who was allegedly punched, kicked and stabbed during an incident in Tallaght last year.
The 17-year-old is charged with robbery of the man on July 29 last year.
He was refused bail when he appeared before Judge John Lindsay at Dublin Children's Court yesterday and was remanded to appear again on April 13.
Another youth also facing a robbery charge in connection with the incident has been granted bail and is due to appear again at the juvenile court on April 30. Neither teenager has entered a plea to the charges.
