Woman punched in face

A 28-year-old man who punched a woman in the face was given a three-month prison sentence last Friday at Craigavon Court.

Michael Krzystof, Aldervale, Craigavon admitted unlawful assault on December 5 last year.

Police received a report of an assault at Victoria Street in Lurgan. The injured party said the defendant had turned up at her house intoxicated. He was aggressive and punched her on the face. When interviewed the defendant said he could not remember what happened.

Mr Conor Downey, representing the defendant, said his client had been released on bail on December 23 and was in court on December 24 for a breach of bail.

Krzystof was walking through the town when he met the injured party and they went for a walk together in Lord Lurgan Park. Mr Downey said the parties would resume their relationship when Krzystof was released.
