Serious assault charges, Stones Corner

A man has been charged with thirteen offences including animal cruelty and serious assault charges after allegedly threatening seven people along Logan Road at Stones Corner this afternoon.

It will be alleged around 1.20pm a 75-year-old man was driving his mobility scooter on the footpath of Vine Street, leading his Jack Russell dog when a man approached him carrying a large kitchen knife. He kicked the dog and struck the dog with the handle of the knife before threatening the man.

Another man was sitting in his car on Logan Road near Cornwall Street when he was approached by the same offender who produced a knife and made threatening gestures toward the man. The driver locked the car doors when the man then stabbed at the windows and kicked the passenger door. The driver feared for his safety and drove off.

It will be further alleged about 50 metres further south on Logan Road a 69-year-old man was getting out of his car when the man struck him in the back of his neck, again with the knife handle.

Prior to the intersection with Bardsley Avenue a 34-year-old man was leaving a store when the man has swung the knife at him. He has then taken the man’s phone and continued south on Logan Road.

It will also be alleged further south on Logan Road the man has threatened another two men with the knife and chased them. The two men took refuge in a shop and locked the door.

Near the intersection of Dansie Street the man has opened the passenger door of a stopped vehicle and threatened the driver with the knife. The driver drove away and police located the man nearby a short time later and arrested him.
