Warrant after man 'dropped his pants'

A BENCH warrant has been issued for a man who allegedly pulled down his trousers in front of a garda station, grabbed his genitals and shouted "suck this, scum".

DEAN Sullivan (23) of Harelawn Park, Clondalkin, had just been released from Ronanstown Garda Station on September 1 last when he committed the lewd act.

He ran away but was caught a short distance away.

Sullivan was due before Blanchardstown District Court for sentencing after a judge ordered a probation report, but he failed to appear.

The court heard that Sullivan is currently unlawfully at large from Mountjoy Prison.

The court was told he has 46 previous convictions, mostly for public order matters.

Judge David McHugh issued a bench warrant.
