‘SUPER-HUMAN’ MAN BROKE INTO PRAMERICA AND TRIED TO ATTACK MACHINES

first_imgA man with ‘super human’ strength jumped through a reinforced window and later had to be restrained by SEVEN gardai who failed to stop him with pepper spray and batons.Theo Boake pictured laving court. Pic copyright of Northwest Newspix.Theo Boake broke into Letterkenny technology company Pramerica and attacked the company’s €300,000 server system with a fire extinguisher. The 24 year old student claims he did not know what he was doing and claims he is not guilty by reason of insanity.He appeared at Letterkenny Circuit Court where he is charged with a number of offenses of causing criminal damage and assault.A jury of eight women and four men were shown amazing CCTV footage of Boake jumping through a reinforced wire glass pane before going on to attack servers with a fire extinguisher.Mr Gerard Grant, Vice-President of Information Technology at Pramerica Systems, said there were fears over the future of the computers following the attack on November 3rd, 2012.The following day Gardai were called when Boake went berserk in a phone shop in Letterkenny when his debit card would not work.He had tried to pay for €1,700 worth of goods including smart phones on his debit card at the Carphone Warehouse shop but it was declined several times.He then smashed the machine by punching it and the manager of the store called the Gardai.When Gardai arrived, Boake, of 76 Ballymaccol Woods, Letterkenny, reacted violently and had to be forcefully arrested.He was taken to Letterkenny Garda station where a doctor was called to examine a cut to his hand.The doctor recommended he receive hospital treatment but as he was getting into an ambulance, he fled the scene of he Garda station at Newline Road.Gardai eventually caught up with the prisoner but it took at least seven gardai to restrain him.Garda Damian Mulkearns said he had never witnessed anything like the strength of Boake.“It was almost as if he was super human. I have never seen anything as strong. The incapacitating spray did not have any affect on him,” he said.Garda Marcus O’Dowd said he had used his baton on the prisoner but it did not have any affect either.“I hit him with my baton but it had not affect at all. It was like hitting a wall. I pepper sprayed him but it had no affect either. He punched me in the face and I had a black eye and a bit of bruising.“I have never seen the pepper spray not working. It doesn’t matter what size you are – you usually foam from the mouth and it should blind you for around ten minutes. I have never seen it not working,” he said.Barrister for Boake, Mr Peter Nolan said his client was suffering from paranoid schizophrenia and was normally a very mannerly young man.Ms Patricia McLaughlin, barrister for the state, said almost all of the facts of the case were admitted by the defense but it was up to the jury to decide if Mr Boake was not guilty by reason of insanity.The case continues today.‘SUPER-HUMAN’ MAN BROKE INTO PRAMERICA AND TRIED TO ATTACK MACHINES was last modified: February 6th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:attackdonegalGardailetterkennypramericasuper-humanTheo Boakelast_img read more

High flying KCCA out to maintain top spot when they travel away to Bul

first_img Tags: Bul FCKCCA FCMike MutebiStarTimes Uganda Premier Leaguetop KCCA FC are three points clear at the top of the League (file photo)StarTimes Uganda Premier LeagueBul FC vs KCCA FCNjeru Technical Center, JinjaSaturday, 29-12-2018 @4pmNJERU – KCCA FC will be hoping they can continue their fine run of form when they travel away to Bul FC in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League on Saturday afternoon.Mike Mutebi’s side are on the back of a 8-2 victory at home to Amuka Bright Stars in the Uganda Cup which came just days after registering their maiden away victory in continental football (2-1 vs Mtibwa Sugar).The Kasairo’s are also on the back of a 3-0 victory at home to Paidah Black Angels in the league, three points that saw them pull as many (points) clear of second placed Onduparaka in the standings.Despite the form, Mutebi thinks it will not be an easy game for his side.“We are prepared for the challenge ahead of us and it is good that we are currently doing well amongst the teams trying to win the league, said Mutebi ahead of the game.“We know it is not going to be a walk in the park because Bul has always given us problems and we know it is going to be difficult on Saturday but we have enough in our armory to win it.“We are in a rich vine of form via scoring which gives us confidence against whichever opponent we come up against.KCCA are expected to still be without strikers, Patrick Kaddu and Allan Kyambadde so Mike Mutyaba who struck a hat trick against Amuka Bright Stars will most likely lead the attack again. Julius Poloto and Bernard Muwanga returned from injury in the Uganda Cup and it remains to be seen if they will get the nod to start their first League game in a while.For Bul, who defeated Kataka in their round of 64 Uganda Cup on Sunday, they come into the game on the back of a 3-1 home loss against Vipers in their last League outing.Peter Onen’s side have been inconsistent all season despite losing only three games all season. They currently sit 7th on the log with 19 points from their first 12 games.Match Facts:Is will be the 15th League meeting between the two sides since Bul gained promotion to the top tie in 2014.In the first 14 meetings, KCCA has won 7 and lost only two (5 draws).The season, KCCA defeated Bul home and away including a 3-1 win for the Kasasiros in the reverse fixture.Going into Saturday’s game, Bul have won only one of their last six League games (D3 L2). The win was in their 1-0 home victory over Onduparaka at the start of this month.At home, Onen’s side have lost only two of their first six games this season (W3 D1).For KCCA, they go into the game having lost only one of their last 17 league games (W12 D4). The single loss in that period was in the 3-2 defeat at Express on 11-12-2018.Away from home, Mutebi’s side have lost only one of their last eight League games (W5 L2).The other games to be played on Saturday:-Paidah Black Angels vs SC Villa-Vipers SC vs Tooro United-Ndejje University vs Maroons FC-Mbarara City vs Bright StarsComments last_img read more

Police ask telecom companies to suspend 3G and 4G services in Kashmir Valley

first_imgThe Jammu and Kashmir police has directed telecom companies to shut their 3G and 4G services in the Kashmir Valley as the state authorities feel there has been an attempt to spread fear and show security personnel in a bad light through online videos.The decision was taken after several videos surfaced in recent days, some showing local politicians being threatened by terrorists in various parts of the Valley and others which showed alleged atrocities by Army, police, CRPF or other para-military forces deputed for Parliamentary bye-elections.Officials said that it appears that such videos were being circulated with an aim to create fear among people or show the security personnel in poor light.Controversy peaked when a video showing a man tied to an army jeep in Budgam district of central Kashmir on April 9 surfaced when polling was underway for the Srinagar Parliamentary bypoll.A case has been registered against unknown army personnel for the alleged act which received wide criticism.There were videos showing traders and political leaders in Pulwama of South Kashmir being threatened by terrorists at gun point.“Such videos are only aimed at creating scare in general public,” a senior police official said.Internet services had been barred in the Valley keeping in view the sensitive Srinagar bypoll and were restored on April 13.last_img read more
