Accused stabber in court

- PETER HARDWICK

A 26-YEAR-OLD Toowoomba man accused of stabbing a man at a Newtown service station has had his case adjourned in Toowoomba Magistrate­s Court.

Aaron Sydney Green was not required to be in court when his charge of unlawful wounding was mentioned on Tuesday.

His solicitor Chelsea Saldumbide, of McConnell and Saldumbide Criminal Lawyers, told the court she expected the case to go up to the higher court by way of ex officio indictment but asked for a one month adjournmen­t.

Green has been remanded in custody since the alleged incident at the 7/11 Service Station on Bridge St, Newtown, about 10am, August 1.

It is believed the two men were known to each other and that the other 26-year-old man was taken to hospital with a non-life threatenin­g wound.

Green handed himself into police two days later.

He has not as yet been required to enter any plea.

Magistrate Kay Ryan remanded Green in custody and adjourned the case for mention back in the same court on October 12.
