Judge confines teen to jail
A WARWICK teenager will be confined to a cell for the next six weeks, after being refused bail following a magistrate’s declaration he poses an unacceptable risk to the community.
Beau James Fogarty, 17, appeared in Warwick Magistrates Court on Wednesday, alongside co-accused Levi Jason
Clarke-Davis, also 17, with each man facing a charge of assault occasioning bodily harm while in company.
The charges relate to an alleged incident at a party in Canning St on the evening of June 3 where another teen received substantial injuries.
Police will allege Clarke-Davis and Fogarty were part of a group that surrounded a fellow teen at a party before submitting him to acts that included putting a lit cigarette on his head, tipping a drink over his head and repeatedly punching him in the face.
It will also be alleged the duo chased the teen – who is believed to have sustained injuries which required stitches as well as cuts and swelling to his face – a short distance as he tried to get away.
Although Fogarty was not released back into the community, Clarke-Davis was granted bail but was ordered to adhere to strict conditions.
The pair will re-appear in the Warwick Magistrates Court on August, 7.
