A man almost blinded his 3 year old daughter when he threw a glass jug in a rage at his wife’s lover.
Prince Asamoah attacked his wife and her new partner when he entered her home in Letterkenny.
The woman and her four daughters were left terrified in the house at 84 The Grange on June 5th last.
Letterkenny District Court was told Asamoah arrived at the house and a huge argument started which saw the accused challenge his wife’s new lover to “settle this like a man.”
The court heard that Asamoah picked up a chair and then a set of pliers and tried to attack the man but he was stopped.
He then threw a glass jug at him but he ducked and the jug smashed spraying his three year old daughter with glass.
The little girl needed stiches to the wound and pictures of her horrific injuries were handed into the court.
Judge Paul Kelly said “The photos are horrifying. Hopefully they have healed up. And luckily it doesn’t appear to have damaged her eye.”
Defence solicitor Frank Dorrian said his client had harboured hopes of a reconciliation with his wife but that was not meant to be.
Asamoah faced charges of assault causing harm, assault, trespassing and criminal damage.
He said he was very sorry and felt so guilty about hurting his daughter.
Judge Kelly adjourned the case against Asamoah of 64 Hollywell Woods, Swords, Co Dublin for a probation report.
