A man was allegedly beaten up in his own home as a result of which he was hospitalised for five days.

Sergeant Gearóid Davis outlined the allegations in the case against a 46-year-old woman accused of assault causing harm to the man.

After hearing the allegations, Judge Olann Kelleher said the case was too serious to deal with at Cork District Court and he refused jurisdiction.

A book of evidence will have to be prepared in relation to Mary Williamson.

The judge said he would deal with the cases of three young people arising out of the same incident where they were variously charged with public order and lesser assault counts.

All four cases were adjourned until July 6 at Cork District Court.

Sergeant Davis outlined the background to the alleged incident yesterday.

“On June 27 2019 at around 8.20pm, Gardaí from Gurranabraher attended at the scene of a serious dispute at Fota Lawn, Knocknaheeny, involving a large group of individuals.

“There were a number of public order arrests and allegations of assault.

“On arrival the gardaí found Michael Stryczek lying injured on the landing. He claimed he was struck with an iron bar or similar weapon.

“He was conscious but covered in blood and appeared to have injuries to his head and body and was in severe pain,” Sgt. Davis said.

Mary Williamson, aged 46, of 9 Dunmanus Park, Knocknaheeny, is charged with assault causing harm to Michael Stryczek. 

Her case will be dealt with at Cork Circuit Criminal Court once a book of evidence is served.

The other three defendants will be dealt with summarily at Cork District Court.

Chloe Williamson, aged 20, of the same address is charged with being drunk and a danger, engaging in threatening behaviour and damaging windows at Fota Lawn that night.

Shania Williamson, 21, of the same address is charged with threatening, simple assault on Michael Stryczek, and damaging windows.

27-year-old Ross Horgan of 5 O’Leary Place, Barrack Street, is charged with damaging windows and assaulting Michael Stryczek.
