Grandmother left bruised and grazed when dragged along the footpath

first_imgPrint NewsLocal NewsGrandmother left bruised and grazed when dragged along the footpathBy admin – August 3, 2011 490 Linkedin A 30-year-old man who dragged a grandmother along the ground in attempting to steal her handbag, was jailed for three years at Limerick Circuit Court. John Coleman, with an address at St John’s Square, pleaded guilty to the attempted robbery of the woman’s handbag as he grabbed the strap after taking her eight-year-old granddaughter’s bag off the ground. Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The incident, on June 19, 2010, happened as the woman in her 60s sat on the wall at St John’s Hospital. Coleman, the court was told, approached and took the child’s bag and then grabbed the grandmother’s, but she refused to leave go and held on to it as she was dragged along the ground. The woman suffered bruises and grazing to her left arm, shoulder and face. A passer-by intervened and grabbed hold of the bag, before Coleman fled to an apartment block in St John’s Square. During the incident, the accused dropped a set of keys into the bag and when gardai arrived, they tried the keys in the door to Coleman’s apartment, and he subsequently invited them in and made full admissions. Coleman, referred to as well known to gardai, was very apologetic for frightening the woman. Judge Carroll Moran convicted and sentenced him to four years in prison, and suspended the final year.

Men’s basketball aims to stay undefeated at home

first_imgExpect the Trojans to continue to follow the same leaders as they square off against the Utes at Galen Center at 8 p.m. on Wednesday. “I’m going to try to limit [Barefield’s] scoring,” Thornton said. “He’s a great player, but I’ve [played] against them my whole life.” “We have a lot of motivation,” head coach Andy Enfield said. “We’re trying to win the Pac-12 regular season.” “Our players are doing a great job of sharing the ball, making the extra pass and creating for their teammates,” Enfield said. In their recent 93-84 commanding victory over Washington State, the Trojans led with 19 assists and reached their highest scoring output since mid-November. Throughout the game, USC rode the hot hands of senior forward Bennie Boatwright and junior guard Jonah Mathews, in addition to the dominating interior presence of breakout star junior forward Nick Rakocevic. Following a six-win season in his inaugural campaign as head coach, Krystkowiak has coached the Utes to five straight 20-win seasons and five consecutive top-four Pac-12 finishes. However, barring some unexpected change in play, the 2018-19 season may be the end of Utah’s recent streaks of success. In fact, the season as a whole has been tough for head coach Larry Krystkowiak and his bunch. Allen has become one of the rare offensive weapons for the Utes, and has also asserted himself as a scorer who needs to be accounted for before tipoff. When Thornton isn’t disrupting the offense of the opposing team, he is making the lives and scoring opportunities of his teammates easier, evident in his five assists per game. The Trojans have focused on sharing the ball this season: Enfield’s bunch currently leads the Pac-12 in team assists with 16.5 per game. “They have four or five guys on the court that can make threes, so we have to guard the 3-point line,” Enfield said. As expected by Utah fans, Allen slightly struggled at the start of the season, averaging just 9.1 points in non-conference play; however, against Pac-12 competitors, the freshman has upped his nightly scoring to 14.4 points. One of the main reasons behind Utah’s mediocrity this season is its poor defense. For the first time in Krystkowiak’s tenure, Utah is allowing its opponents to score over 70 points a game. In fact, the Utes are having their worst defensive season in three decades statistically, as their 73.4 nightly allowed points is the highest since the 1978-79 season. Redshirt junior guard Derryck Thornton shoots against ASU at Galen Center Jan. 26. (Josh Dunst/Daily Trojan) Scoring against the Trojans won’t be easy for Barefield, as he will match up with one of the best guard on-ball defenders in the conference in redshirt junior point guard Derryck Thornton. With 29 steals on the season, Thornton is eighth in the conference. Coming off their first road win of conference play, the Trojans are motivated to remain undefeated at home in Pac-12 play en route to achieving their ultimate goal. Standing in the Trojans’ path to home perfection is the staggering Utah team. After picking up four straight wins against some of the conference’s bottom feeders, the Utes have since dropped two tough single-digits losses at home. On the offensive side, Utah has followed that same theme of mediocrity, as it continues to fall in the middle of the Pac-12 in scoring. Despite a mediocre ranking in total scoring, the Utes are statistically the best shooting team in the conference. However, it’s clear who Utah’s main go-to guy is. Coming into the matchup with an average of slightly over 16 points an outing, senior guard Sedrick Barefield is currently Pac-12’s seventh-highest scorer and is the conference’s highest-scoring point guard. Furthermore, the Trojans have to watch out for two major elements of Utah’s offense — senior point guard Sedrick Barefield and four-star freshman forward Timmy Allen.last_img read more
