COVID case sends Mullum High teachers and students into isolation

Mullumbimby High School has had a case of COVID-19 confirmed with all staff and students requested to self isolate.

A man has been charged following investigations into the reckless wounding of his domestic partner during a dispute in East Ballina overnight.

About 7pm Monday (November 5) the two men, both aged 37, were involved in an argument at their unit on Seaview Street.

The argument escalated, where one man allegedly punched the other man several times to the face, before using a pair of scissors to inflict numerous wounds to the man’s cheek, lip and ear.

The injured man went to Ballina Hospital for treatment and has since been released from hospital.

About 10.15pm (Monday 5 November 2018) officers from Richmond Police District arrested a 37-year-old man at a unit in East Ballina.

He was taken to Ballina Police Station where he was charged with reckless grievous bodily harm and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

He was refused bail to appear at Lismore Local Court today (November 6).
