A young Portadown man who threw a bottle at a girl was fined £120 last Friday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for an assault charge.

Mark Kennedy (19), Queen Street, Portadown, admitted the offence which happened on April 26 last year.

The court heard that on April 27 last year it was reported to police that the defendant had thrown a bottle at the injured party at Fair Green the previous day. The bottle did not make contact but landed close by.

Mr Richard Monteith, representing the defendant, said Kennedy had put the young girl in fear by throwing the bottle.

It was something between two groups at the Fair Green which got out of hand, he added.
