A GUILTY plea has been entered by a Newry man charged with assault on two Daisy Hill ambulance workers whilst in possession of a knife.

Rodney Feagan (48) of Killeavy Road has pleaded guilty to possession of a blade in a public place, disorderly behaviour, resisting police and assaulting two ambulance workers on September 20, 2020.

The defendant appeared at Newry magistrates court on Wednesday.

No details of the case were opened by the public prosecution services.

However, district judge Eamonn King alluded to serious matters involving a knife at Daisy Hill hospital and assaults on two ambulance workers.

Defence barrister, Kevin Magill stated that his client, who was entering guilty pleas to all charges, was in breach of a suspended sentence and suggested the need for a pre-sentence report.

Mr King adjourned the case to March 10 for a pre-sentence report to be processed ahead of sentencing.
