A man appeared in court today charged over a serious assault in Tweed Heads overnight on Friday 17 June.

About 12am (Friday, 17 June, 2022), a 37-year-old man left a hotel on Wharf Street, Tweed Heads and walked to a bus stop outside a nearby shopping centre, planning to wait until transport recommenced.
