Five months prison term for Belfast man who said:'I'll get 36 petrol bombs and put them through every window in your house'

A MAN with a Belfast address has been jailed for five months in connection with a disturbance in Toomebridge when he reportedly said: "I'll get 36 petrol bombs and put them through every window in your house".

Conor Conway (31), of 'no fixed abode' in Belfast, admitted being disorderly at Station Park; making a threat to kill; two assaults and causing criminal damage to two police vehicles.

A prosecutor told Antrim Magistrates Court, sitting in Ballymena (main picture), police were called around 11pm on May 20 last year.

Concerned local residents told police that two men were allegedly attacking people, damaging vehicles and "weapons were involved".

Police went to an address and located two males. A co-accused was previously in court.

A woman told police the two defendants were attacking her partner and when she tried to intervene the co-accused grabbed her by the throat.

She said the co-accused damaged her car with a wooden plank.

The prosecutor said the woman said the co-accused threw a knife over railings and he shouted: "I'll put 35 rounds in your house, I'm going to smoke you out, burn you out".

The woman said Conway had pushed her to the ground and punched her partner and threatened to kill him.

The prosecutor said Conway, who had a previous record, was heard to shout: "I'll get 36 petrol bombs and put them through every window in your house".

When arrested, Conway kicked the door of a police vehicle causing it to hit another police car.

He spat in the back of the police car.

A defence lawyer accepted it was a "serious and unsavoury" incident.

He said Conway had little recollection as he was "under the influence".

District Judge Nigel Broderick said they had been "nasty offences" and jailed Conway for five months.
