Warrant issued for arrest of Dungannon man suspected of assault


A bench warrant has been issued for the arrest of a Dungannon man who failed to show up to court.

Sean McDowell, 25, from Ballygawley Road, was due to be sentenced for four assaults on police officers on October 23 as well as criminal damage and resisting arrest.

He had also been found guilty of resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer on November 18.

At court on Wednesday his solicitor, Mr Craig Patton, admitted that his client had not attended court nor had he met with the Probation Board ahead of the sentencing hearing.
