A MAN charged in connection with a knife attack and burglary in Letterkenny has been remanded in custody.
Gabor Zsebi (41) appeared at Letterkenny District Court via video link from Castlerea Prison.
Zsebi’s solicitor, Mr Frank Dorrian, advised his client, via an interpreter, that ‘it is not wise’ to make a bail application on his behalf as he does not have an address at which he can reside.
Mr Dorrian advised Zsebi of the process involved in the DPP determining which court he would be tried before.
He added: “Unless you can furnish an address where you can live then you are kind of stuck for the moment where you are.”
Mr Dorrian had been unable to make contact with two persons whose names had been provided to him by Zsebi over the weekend.
Zsebi was before the court on charges relating to an incident at a house in the Oldtown area of Letterkenny at 2am on Thursday morning last.
Zsebi was charged with aggravated burglary and assault in the course of a fight and producing a weapon, namely a knife, to intimidate another person. He is also charged with assaulting a woman, causing her harm and also burglary during which he had a weapon, namely a knife.
Zsebi is to be assessed by a psychiatrist while in custody this week.
Judge Paul Kelly remanded Zsebi in custody to appear, again via video link, on July 20.
