A young man accused of seriously assaulting another man has been ordered to stay away from a street in south Dublin.

Otis Reynolds (20) was told by a judge not to set foot on Raphoe Road in Crumlin.

He has also been ordered not go near the alleged injured party for the duration of the case.

Judge Alan Mitchell remanded Mr Reynolds on bail, subject to conditions, to a date in October.

The accused, of Windmill Park, Crumlin, appeared before Dublin District Court charged with seriously assaulting another man.

The alleged incident took place at Raphoe Road last March 9.

Mr Reynolds is further charged with endangerment at the same time and place.

The court heard that gardai had no objections to bail, subject to a number of conditions.

Curfew

Defence solicitor Terence Hanahoe said Mr Reynolds had agreed to the bail terms.

Judge Mitchell remanded Mr Reynolds on bail in his own bond of €300.

The accused must sign on three times a week at Crumlin Garda Station and must also observe a curfew between 10pm and 7am.

Gardai may call to his home during those hours to ensure Mr Reynolds is abiding by his bail terms, the judge said.

The accused has been ordered to have no contact, either directly or indirectly, with the alleged injured party.

The court heard that the Director of Public Prosecutions had directed trial on indictment in the circuit court, where the penalties on conviction are greater than in the district court.

Judge Mitchell remanded Mr Reynolds on bail to a date in October for the service of the book of evidence.

He also assigned Mr Hanahoe free legal aid.

The accused has not yet indicated a plea to the charges.
