Knives thrown at police, court told
A man accused of confronting a police officer’s brother while wielding a 31cm long silver carving knife was refused bail when he appeared before Batemans Bay Local Court.
Magistrate David Degnan ordered that Thomas Duggan, 45, of Towamba, remain in custody and undergo a psychiatric examination.
Mr Duggan appeared before the court charged with seven offences: use intimidation to influence a person, intimidation of a police officer at Eden, resisting police, armed with intent to commit an offence, two counts of wielding a knife in a public place, and possession of cannabis leaf.
Police allege a 44-year-old Queensland man was walking along Imlay St in Eden at 5.30am on Monday when Mr Duggan repeatedly called out “Don’t you say hello?”.
The early morning walker told police the man pulled out a long carving knife and followed him into a nearby Caltex service station where he was asked to leave by the attendant.
Police allegations put before Mr Degnan in the bail application state that an officer who was called to the scene saw Mr Duggan on Imlay Street holding a carving knife in one hand in a throwing position.
A second smaller knife was allegedly held in his other hand.
Mr Duggan is alleged to have thrown the two knives and a quantity of plastic knives before running off. He was chased and tackled by the police.
The case was adjourned to July 9.
