Mag­is­trate tight­ens con­di­tions for bail

Wanneroo Times - - News -

A MAG­IS­TRATE de­scribed charges against a man who al­legedly fired a ‘gel blaster’ gun at pedes­tri­ans in Craigie early last month as se­ri­ous and tight­ened his bail con­di­tions last week.

Mag­is­trate Deen Pot­ter re­manded Luke Kevin Demp­ster (26), of Wan­neroo, in Joon­dalup Mag­is­trates Court last Fri­day un­til Oc­to­ber 26 and or­dered he not con­tact his three al­leged vic­tims or go within 100m of where they lived.

Mr Pot­ter set bail at $5000 and ap­plied the pro­tec­tive con­di­tions af­ter ques­tion­ing why there were no con­di­tions on the orig­i­nal bail.

Ben Mal­puss (26), of Wood­vale, later also ap­peared in Joon­dalup Mag­is­trates Court last Fri­day charged in re­la­tion to the Craigie in­ci­dents on Septem­ber 4.

He was granted $10,000 and re­manded to reap­pear on Novem­ber 5. He has to re­port to Joon­dalup po­lice sta­tion once a week and is not al­lowed to con­tact coac­cused Mr Demp­ster.
