A man has appeared in court charged with stalking and entering enclosed lands at Lismore last week.

About 7.45pm last Monday (September 4), a 35-year-old man approached a house in Laurel Avenue and several times attempted to enter the house, which is occupied by two women aged 23 and 30-years old.

The incident was reported to police.

Then about 12.30pm on Saturday (September 9), the same man attended a house in Dalziel Street, Lismore. He allegedly walked through the front door uninvited and left shortly afterwards.

The man allegedly returned to the house later that evening and attempted to gain entry by knocking on the doors and windows around the house.

Police attended and arrested the man. He was taken to Lismore Police Station and charged with  stalking/intimidating and intending fear or physical harm and entering enclosed land without lawful excuse.

He was refused bail and appeared in Lismore Bail Court on 10 September 2017.
