Jordan Cheteucuti is a wanted man after he failed to appear in court to face two charges of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and possessing a prohibited drug.
The 19-year-old from North Lismore was listed to appear in Lismore Local Court on Monday.
He first came to the attention of police on May 12, when he was with a group of other people at 11.30pm in Lismore.
When officers asked Mr Cheteucuti whether he was carrying anything, court documents stated, he allegedly told police he had cannabis down his pants for personal use.
After he was arrested and police weighed the drug, Mr Cheteucuti was charged with possessing 24 grams of cannabis.
Then on June 30, when Mr Cheteucuti was staying on the couch at a friend’s North Lismore home and he was told he was no longer welcome, he allegedly became angry.
Police facts said Mr Cheteucuti allegedly started yelling at his friend before he punched him in the head five to eight times.
The man suffered broken skin above his right eye, bleeding, swelling and bruising from the alleged attack.
When the man’s grand daughter saw the alleged assault she tried to stop Mr Cheteucuti, but he allegedly bit her left thumb, causing it to bleed.
He was arrested that day after fleeing the scene and taken to Lismore police station where he was charged and granted conditional bail.
When Mr Cheteucuti failed to appear on Monday, Magistrate David Heilpern warrant for his arrest under section 25(2) of the Crimes Sentencing Procedure Act.
