An Ocean Shores man will be sentenced this month after pleading guilty to assaulting a man at Goonellabah in 2016 while he was armed with a knife.

Jarred Cormick appeared in Lismore Local Court on Monday and was represented by solicitor Vince Boss.

The 21-year-old pleaded guilty to charges of using an offensive weapon to commit an indictable offence, being armed with intent to commit an indictable offence and common assault

It is alleged on January 6, 2016, between 4.30am and 6.30am, Mr Cormick assaulted a man while armed with a knife at Goonellabah.

He was arrested and charged over the incident and granted conditional bail, which he breached when he failed to appear at Lismore Local Court on May 17, 2016.

When he wanted to move from Richmond Hill to Ocean Shores, Mr Cormick had his bail conditions varied by the court on September 12, 2016.

Then between 3.30 am and 3.55 am on March 20 this year, it is alleged Mr Cormick broke into the workshop of the BP service station on the Summerland Way at Kyogle.

While inside the workshop it is alleged he stole tools valued at $6350 and a black Queensland registered Hyundai Elantra vehicle.

Between March 28 and March 30, it is also alleged Mr Cormick was a passenger in a stolen Audi station wagon at Alstonville.

Court documents concerning the most recent charges were marked ‘brief served in court today’, by Magistrate David Heilpern on Monday.

He adjourned all of Mr Cormick’s matters until July 31, to confirm his pleas and for sentencing to meet up with other matters.

Mr Cormick remains on conditional bail until his next court appearance.
