Teen spat in face of Subway worker

A teen spat into the face of man working at a Subway sandwich outlet when he and others were told to move away from the premises.

The teen’s solicitor asked the judge at Cork District Court yesterday to remand the accused in custody.

Solicitor Frank Buttimer for Volodymyr Reyterovych, aged 19, said: “I would be very, very concerned about him. Harm is a major, major, immediate concern. He is at high risk.”

On a defence application, Judge Leo Malone remanded the accused in custody until July 18. Inspector Bill Duane said the incident dated to when Reyterovych was 17. It occurred on October 18, 2014, outside Subway on Parnell Place, Cork. The injured party was working in the premises when a group of youths gathered outside. He told them to move away from the entrance as they were blocking it.

Reyterovych spat in his face, Insp Duane said. He pleaded guilty to assault, engaging in threatening behaviour, and being drunk and a source of danger to himself or others.

Mr Buttimer said the defendant was reasonably well for a time but recently had been “going the wrong way” and his behaviour was a source of great concern.
