Armed assault charges adjourned
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.
