A young man has been sent for trial accused of attempting to unlawfully seize a car near his home.

Cameron Malcolmson (21) had a book of evidence served on him at Dublin District Court.

Judge Bryan Smyth sent him forward for trial to Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

Mr Malcolmson, of Seagull House, Rutland Avenue, Crumlin, is charged with attempting to seize a vehicle at Rutland Avenue.

A garda said he charged the accused before the court and handed him a copy of the charge sheet.

Mr Malcolmson made no reply after caution, the officer said.

An existing charge was withdrawn by the prosecution and struck out.

The DPP directed trial on indictment and was consenting to the case being sent forward to the present sittings of the circuit court, a state solicitor said.

Objection

The book of evidence was ready and served on the accused.

The garda said there was no objection to bail being granted on the new charge and he was not seeking any conditions.

The judge granted bail in Mr Malcolmson's own bond of €250, with no cash lodgement required.

He also granted free legal aid following an application by defence solicitor Michael French to also cover a barrister.

He ordered the prosecution to furnish the defence with copies of the accused's garda interview video.

Judge Smyth gave Mr Malcolmson the formal warning that he must provide any alibi details to the prosecution within 14 days.

He was remanded on bail to appear again next month.

No further details of the charge were disclosed, and the accused has not yet entered a plea.
