Peel man accused of attacking his own father

Twenty-two year old denies causing actual bodily harm

A man from Peel who’s accused of launching an attack on his own father has been remanded in custody.

Twenty-two-year-old Ciaran Illiam Kaighin of Michael Street appeared before High Bailiff Jayne Hughes at Douglas courthouse.

He denies causing actual bodily harm on 3 October at his parent’s home on Douglas Street.

Prosecution advocate Rachael Braidwood told the court Mr Kaighin had been drinking in pubs before going to see his father at 1.30am.

Mr Kaighin is said to have argued with his father, shouting “you're talking about me behind my back” before attacking.

He’s alleged to have slammed a door in his father’s face, before punching and head-butting him so hard he left teeth marks on his head.

The hearing was told his father needed hospital treatment after the incident and had withdrawn a statement he'd made to police.

Mrs Hughes refused a bail application and remanded Mr Kaighin in custody until his next court appearance on 10 November.
