A man and a woman involved in an alleged stabbing and theft at Ballina earlier this week have been refused bail.
It is alleged between 3pm and 3.30pm on Monday, 24 year-old Dylan Michael Jones and 30 year-old Kyrran Aileen Ellen Daley entered Big W at Ballina.
While in the shop, police allege Ms Daley stole $50 worth of cosmetics, before the pair fled the store.
Then, about 4pm, police allege Mr Jones entered a fast food business at Ballina Central Shopping Centre and stole $450 in $50 notes from a cash register.
When Mr Jones fled the shop he was followed by two men, witnesses told police, and when one of the men demanded the cash from Mr Jones an altercation occurred in which police allege a 15-year-old boy was stabbed.
The boy was taken to Ballina hospital for treatment.
Police launched an investigation and following enquiries, Mr Jones and Ms Daley were arrested at a home in Wardell and taken to Ballina police station.
Mr Jones was charged with reckless wounding, larceny, possessing or using a prohibited weapon without a permit and using an offensive weapon to prevent lawful detention.
Ms Daley was charged with concealing a serious indictable offence (alleged stabbing of 15 year-old boy), shoplifting and two counts of goods in custody.
Both were refused bail and appeared at Lismore Local Court on Tuesday.
The court heard the alleged offences had been referred to the Director of Public Prosecutions DPP.
Neither Mr Jones, or Ms Daley applied for bail, which was formally refused by Magistrate David Heilpern.
He adjourned the pair’s matters until April 4 to see if the DPP elect to prosecute the case.
