Man admits a number of attacks on women in Belfast

A man charged with a number of attacks on women in Belfast has fully admitted the victims and apologized to the victims, Belfast District Court has heard.

Dermott McIlveen, 38, of Carrigart Avenue in West Belfast also expressed “extreme regrets and remorse” for the spate of knife wounds and assaults Monday night, his lawyer said.

Four women suffered knife wounds while two others were beaten by a man on a bicycle in parts of central and south Belfast.

Police said none of the victims suffered life-threatening injuries but were deeply traumatized.

Patrols were stepped up and CCTV images of the suspect released as part of a major operation to track down the attacker.

McIlveen was subsequently arrested and charged with five attacks that resulted in actual bodily harm, deliberately attempted bodily harm, and possession of an offensive weapon – namely a knife.

He appeared from a distance outside the Magistrates’ Court in Belfast from a PSNI detention suite and spoke only to confirm that he understood the allegations made against him.

Defense attorney Brian Archer said McIlveen did not request bail.
