Derry teenager imprisoned for attacking man

An 18-year-old Londonderry man has been sentenced to eight months detention for attacking a man at his front door.

District Judge Barney McElholm told Dylan Smyth of Bradley Park it was a "disgraceful attack on an innocent man".

When police called to the defendant's address following the attack, he admitted punching the injured party 10 times.

The judge said that Smyth had kneed and kicked the man in the face.
