Two are arrested in Port William

It was a busy time for police officers in Port William last weekend after two incidents led to arrests and court appearances on Monday at Stranraer Sheriff Court.

A 25-year-old Port William man will be sentenced next month after admitting three charges.

Robert Turner, of 4 Seaview Terrace, pled guilty to shouting and swearing at Amanda Lockhart, striking a fridge and repeatedly striking a 
kitchen door and kicking a kitchen cupboard at his home on May 10.

The accused also admitted two further charges of resisting two police officers who were trying to arrest him by struggling with them and, during the journey from the village to Stranraer in a police van, pulling the plastic casing off a light in the caged area.

Turner will return to the court for sentencing on June 4 after Sheriff Kenneth Robb called for background reports.

Appearing the same day, also from custody, was teenager Alexander McShane after another incident in the same village over the weekend.

McShane, 19, of 36 High Street, Whithorn, admitted assaulting Lauren Maxwell at Seaview Terrace, Port William, last Sunday by pushing her, causing her to fall to the ground.

The accused also pled guilty at the sheriff court in Stranraer to assaulting 
Debra Murray by punching her on the head and assaulting Daniel Murray by punching him on the head in Seaview Terrace the same day.

Sheriff Robb again decided to defer sentence on McShane to allow for reports to be compiled on the accused.

That case will also be called again on June 4.
