Assange doco to screen in Byron

Julian Assange’s US extradition appeal is a significant event in the world’s history of democracy but he’s been in jail so long some have probably missed the memo.

It took a year, but police have arrested and charged a man with an aggravated robbery in Lismore in late 2014.

Around 3pm on Thursday 4 December 2014, a 20-year-old woman was alone in a home on High Street when she heard the front door open and someone enter.

On checking the property she found a man armed with a knife in one of the bedrooms.

The man demanded money, before taking cash, a mobile phone and bank cards from the woman.

The woman ran to a nearby home and alerted police. The armed man was last seen running east along High Street.

Officers from the Richmond Local Area Command investigated the matter and, following numerous inquiries, they arrested a man following a brief foot pursuit on Casino Road, Lismore, on Saturday evening (January 30).

The man, aged 29, was taken to Lismore Police Station, where he was charged with aggravated break, enter and steal; and armed robbery.

He was bail refused and is scheduled to appear before Lismore Local Court tomorrow (Monday 1 February 2016).
