Assault Charge, Fire, Over Weekend in Waikerie


A man will face court in February over an assault at Waikerie on Friday afternoon.


It will be alleged the 32-year-old Waikerie man assaulted another man in Smith Street, Waikerie about 12.30pm on Friday 12 January.

The victim had his two front bottom teeth knocked out and required medical treatment.

The man was arrested on Saturday and charged with assault cause harm.

He was bailed to appear in the Waikerie Magistrates Court on 15 February.

Police wish to reassure the public that the two men involved are known to each other and this was not a random incident.

Just after 11pm on Sunday 14 January, a 40-year-old man of no fixed address was arrested and charged with lighting a fire on the Sturt Highway, Waikerie.

It will be alleged the man lit two fires at the location during the fire danger season.

He was refused police bail and will appear in the Berri Magistrates Court today.
