A young man has been sent for trial accused of producing a knife, assaulting a woman and threatening to kill her at a house in Dublin.

Evan Keogh (21) had a book of evidence served on him when he appeared before Blanch- ardstown District Court.

Mr Keogh, with an address at Alpine Heights, Clondalkin, was remanded on continuing bail until his next appearance in Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

He is charged with assault causing harm to a woman and producing a knife while committing or appearing to be about to commit the offence of assault.

He is also charged with threatening to kill or cause serious harm to the same woman and with causing criminal damage to her mobile phone.

The offences are all alleged to have happened at an address at Castlegate Park, Adamstown, last April 17.

Warning

A garda said the accused made no reply when he was arrested and charged.

State solicitor Jonathan Antoniotti said the DPP was directing trial on indictment on all four charges.

Judge Ann Ryan gave Mr Keogh the formal warning that he must provide any alibi details to the prosecution within 14 days.

She returned him for trial to the current sittings of the circuit court on a date next month.

Judge Ryan made an order for the accused's garda interview video to be furnished to the defence and also granted free legal aid after Mr Keogh's solicitor, Terence Hanahoe, made an application.

There were no garda objections.

Judge Ryan remanded the acc- used on continuing bail, under existing terms and conditions.
