Man remanded in custody in connection with alleged stabbing of woman


A man was remanded in custody at court on Monday in connection with an alleged stabbing incident in Ballymoney in the early hours of Saturday.

Pawel Mariusz Paluszkiewicz (40), with an address listed as Linenhall Street in Ballymoney, faces two charges relating to July 6.

He is accused of grievous bodily harm with intent and is also charged with possessing an offensive weapon – a knife – with intent to commit an offence.

A police officer said she believed she could connect the accused to the charge.

A prosecutor said the application was for a remand in custody and a defence lawyer said there was no immediate application for bail.

No details surrounding the allegations were given to the court.

District Judge Liam McNally remanded the defendant into custody to appear back at court at the end of July.

The defence lawyer said a bail application would be made at that stage.

At the weekend police said they were investigating a report of an assault on a female in the Shandon Park area of Ballymoney.

Police said they had received a report that a woman had been stabbed in her home around 1am on Saturday and at that stage they had said her injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.
