An arrest warrant was issued last Wednesday at Craigavon Magistrates Court after a 39-year-old man was convicted for an assault on his former partner in Portadown.

The court heard Jonkauskas had a previous conviction involving the same injured party.

Recording a conviction in the case District Judge, Mrs Bernie Kelly, issued an arrest warrant to have the defendant brought to the court for sentencing.
