Man charged with multiple offences following assault, NSW

A man has been charged with a number of offences including assault after police were called to a hotel in Wickham yesterday, NSW Police say.

About 7.35pm (Monday 22 October 2018), officers from Newcastle City were called to a hotel on Maitland Road following reports of an assault.

On arrival officers were told a 47-year-old man allegedly threatened a female staff member after he was asked to leave due to his level of intoxication.

It’s alleged the man punched a male patron before throwing a schooner glass towards him causing it to smash on the ground.

The patron suffered minor injuries – not from the glass – and didn’t require medical treatment.

Police arrested the man and during a search officers allegedly located a large amount of money and a billiard ball wrapped within a sock.

The man was taken to Newcastle Police Station where he was charged with intimidation, common assault, goods in custody suspected of being stolen or unlawfully obtained and custody of an offensive implement in a public place.

He was refused bail and will appear in Newcastle Local Court today (Tuesday 23 October 2018).
