In court, Sergeant James McCummisky gave evidence of arresting the defendant at Drogheda Garda Station last night. 

He said the accused replied "no comment" when the charge was put to him after caution. 

Mr Piortrowski's solicitor expressed serious concerns for his mental health and requested that he receive the appropriate medical attention. 

A request for legal aid was made and granted by Judge John Cheatle. 

He has been remanded in custody to appear before Cloverhill District court a week from today via video link.
