A man accused of producing a pair of scissors during a row in a shopping centre has been served with a book of evidence and sent forward for trial.

Glen Emerson (26), of Cranogue Terrace, Ballymun, was charged with the offence that allegedly took place at Millfield Shopping Centre, Balbriggan, last September 7.

He faces trial on indictment.

The book of evidence was served on the accused at Balbriggan District Court, and Judge Dermot Dempsey made a return for trial order at the request of the DPP.

After he was sent forward for trial, the accused was told by the judge that he had 14 days to notify the State if he intended to use an alibi in his defence.

He is due to appear at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court on March 13.

He did not address the court and has not yet indicated how he will plead.

Curfew

Under the terms of his bail on his own bond of €400, the accused has to sign on at a garda station, obey a curfew and provide gardai with his mobile phone number.

He must also remain contactable 24 hours a day.

His solicitor was assigned one junior counsel and a Section 56 order of a copy of the accused's garda interview recording was also granted.
