A man claims he was wrongfully arrested and falsely imprisoned after gardaí wrongly suspected he carried out a savage random street attack on his fiancée. The High Court heard the real perpetrator was later caught and jailed for the crime.

Shortly after the attack, the court heard, gardaí roused Gerald Jennings from his sleep in his fiancée's apartment and brought him out on to the street, where a sergeant told him: "That is what you get for beating your girlfriend, you dirty scumbag." As he was being arrested, the court heard, he was pepper-sprayed in his eyes while protesting his innocence.

In April 2014, Colvin Keogh (21), a student from the Paddocks, Carlow, was jailed for seven years after he pleaded guilty to assault causing serious harm and sexual assault on Mr Jennings's fiancée, beautician Martha Kowalczyk (33). Michael McDowell SC said Mr Jennings was "grossly assaulted" by gardaí, who had mistakenly formed the view he was the attacker because they found a handbag and a mobile phone in the apartment.

It was not an honest mistake because the "dirty scumbag" remark showed the garda was acting outside the law, he said. The court heard Mr Jennings had gone to sleep on the sofa in Ms Kowalczyk's apartment after the couple came back from a night out and after Mr Jennings was refused more drink in a local nightclub.

Ms Kowalczyk had been in the company of a visiting friend and they got separated when Mr Jennings had to leave the club. She realised her friend had left her phone in her apartment and went back out to try to find her friend. She could not find her and returned home.
