South Belfast: Man charged over Holyland anti-social behaviour

A 20-year-old man has been charged with two counts of criminal damage and disorderly behaviour after reports of anti-social behaviour in south Belfast.

Police arrived at Agincourt Avenue, in the Holyland area, at about 01:50 BST on Friday to find large crowds “partying, singing, and generally causing a disturbance”.

They said it seemed that various house parties had extended to the street.

The PSNI spoke to some individuals and managed to disperse the crowd.

The charged man was due to appear at Belfast Magistrates’ Court on Friday.

Another 20-year-old man was arrested and issued with a Community Resolution Notice.

The area is normally home to the city’s largest student population.
