A man will be sentenced in September after he admitted inflicting grievous bodily harm.
Having previously entered no plea when appearing before the lower court, Foster pleaded guilty when before Deemster Graeme Cook on Friday at the Court of General Gaol Delivery.
Deemster Cook did note that Lawrence had indicated he would be pleading guilty during his committal to the court. In December last year, we reported that police were called to the 1886 bar on Regent Street shortly after midnight.
The incident happened after a man tried to re-enter the premises. That man suffered a head injury and spent the night in hospital.
A police spokesman said at the time: ’The security staff member was arrested on suspicion of assault and inquiries are ongoing into investigating exactly what happened.
’He has been interviewed and bailed pending further inquiries, one of which is to allow time for witnesses to come forward and provide formal accounts to police.’
Lawrence entered a basis of plea to the court which was accepted by the prosecution.
Deemster Cook adjourned the case until September 17 when Lawrence will be sentenced pending the completion of a social inquiry report.
Bail was continued at the same conditions as set down by the summary courts.
