An amateur boxer has been arrested on suspicion of breaking the nose of a businessman in February who in a separate attack on Tuesday was kidnapped and tortured.

PSNI detectives arrested Bernard McGovern (22) at his home on Thursday morning just a day after company director Kevin Lunney (50) suffered "life-changing" injuries in a savage incident.

Mr McGovern is wanted in the Republic of Ireland over claims that he attacked the Quinn Industrial Holdings (QIH) executive earlier this year.

He is also being sought for alleged involvement in throwing a cup of hot water in the face of Mr Lunney's colleague, Dara O'Reilly, during the same incident in Co Cavan.

Referring to the latest attack on the businessman, Mr Toal stressed: "Whatever happened to Mr Lunney in the recent past has nothing to do with this particular requested person."

In March, Mr Lunney secured an order at the High Court in Belfast to restrain Mr McGovern from any further alleged harassment.

His captors then tried unsuccessfully to cut Mr Lunney's clothes off his body, stabbing him in the body as they did so.
