An Armagh teenager has appeared in court accused of being in possession of a kitchen knife.

The 19-year-old was released on bail with conditions including a ban on alcohol and a curfew.

Ethan Ian McDowell, of Hollow Drive, appeared charged with possession of a bladed article in a public place at the City’s Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.

The alleged offence occurred on September 9 on the Loughgall Road with the blade being referred to as a kitchen knife.

A constable, who was present in court, said that she believed she could connect McDowell to the offences.
