Man denies assault in pub

A trial date was arranged for August 27 after an 32-year-old Isle of Whithorn man pled not guilty to assaulting a woman in a pub in the village last summer.

Gordon Hannah, 16 Boyach Terrace, denies assaulting Ester McGuire in the Queen’s Arms in June last year.

He also denies behaving in a threatening manner at the complainer’s home in Cairnsmore Court, Whithorn, in February this year when refusing to leave her home and preventing Ms McGuire from closing her door.
