Man faces court over threat to kill woman in Belfast

BY ALAN ERWIN

A man has appeared in court accused of having a knife and threatening to kill a woman in Belfast.

Emmanuel Henry was arrested by police following an incident in the Markets area last Friday.

The 21-year-old, of Eliza Street Terrace in the city, has been charged with possessing an offensive weapon in public, namely a six-inch bladed knife.

He faces further counts of making a threat to kill and breaching a non-molestation order.

A policeman opposed his application for bail, claiming there was a risk of further offences.

"It is believed he may interfere with witnesses," the officer said.

However, a defence lawyer confirmed Henry has an available address in west Belfast.

District Judge Fiona Bagnall ruled that the accused could be released to live at Clonavogie Gardens. She banned him from contacting the alleged victim and imposed an exclusion zone.

Henry is due back in court next month.
