Armed as­sault charges ad­journed

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

CHARGES against a man al­leged to have at­tacked the door of a Mandalay home with a butcher’s knife and Samu­rai sword are ex­pected to be heard in the Proser­pine Mag­is­trate’s Court on March 16.

Ju­bilee Pocket res­i­dent Stephen Neil Crisp has been be­hind bars since his first court ap­pear­ance on Jan­uary 15, just six days af­ter the of­fence al­legedly oc­curred.

Crisp, who is charged with as­sault oc­ca­sion­ing bod­ily harm while armed, break­ing into a dwelling and go­ing armed to cause fear, was back in the court this week via a video link with the pri­son in Rock­hamp­ton where he is cur­rently in cus­tody.

Po­lice pros­e­cu­tor El­iz­a­beth Smith said Morton Lawyers from Mackay had car­riage of the case and were seek­ing an ad­journ­ment un­til March 16.

“[And] the mat­ter should pro­ceed in some ca­pac­ity on that date I would ex­pect,” she said.
