Sgt Brian Jacob also told Naas District Court on January 14 that the incident came to light because the defendant was seen acting suspiciously outside the park.

“He had no other explanation for having the screwdriver,” said Sgt Jacob.

The case was adjourned by Judge Desmond Zaidan until May 27 next.
