Jury unable to reach verdict for alleged Malt House assault

A JURY consisting of a dozen people has been unable to reach a verdict on the matter of Dale Robert Randall, who last week faced one charge of assault occasioning bodily harm.

Mr Randall, a 48-year-old male from Warwick, pleaded not guilty to the allegations when he was accused of biting and scratching a security guard, Malual Mangar Ayuel, at the Malt House on the evening of December 9 last year.

The jury heard from the Crown and the defence on Thursday and Friday last week before going into private quarters to reach a decision.

After deliberating for six-and-a-half hours, the jury announced on Monday that it was unable to return a verdict on the charges because it could not reach a decision.

A new court date has been set for Mr Randall, whose matter will be heard at the next Warwick District Court sittings starting on November 5 this year.
