Man gets prison for ice-re­lated vi­o­lence

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - Vanessa Eck­ert

AT­TACK­ING two woman and a po­lice of­fi­cer while high on ice are among the 14 charges that landed a 28-year-old Cairns man with a three-year jail sen­tence.

Dur­ing a drug-fu­elled ram­page Zay Rima Ed­mond Os­car Tamou kicked a 69-year-old woman in the chest as she stood on the side of a Cairns street with her grand­daugh­ter.

The Cairns Mag­is­trates Court was told Tamou had ini­tially walked by the woman, then re­turned and taken a num­ber of steps be­fore kick­ing her.

She fell to the ground heav­ily and Tamou then fled.

An­other woman, who had been driv­ing down Pease St on Novem­ber 1 last year, had seen Tamou be­ing chased and, be­liev­ing him to be in trou­ble, had stopped to help.

While the woman, 50, was giv­ing him a lift, he punched her in the side of the face.

Tamou pleaded guilty to 14 charges from Oc­to­ber to De­cem­ber last year in Cairns and March and April this year in south east Queens­land.
