Man denies assault on woman in her home

A man yesterday has denied trespass in the home of a woman and an assault on her.

James Wilson, 37, pleaded not guilty in Magistrates’ Court to entering the home of Murricea Iris without lawful excuse, as well as an assault on Ms Iris and the use of threatening words.

The incident is alleged to have happened on February 29 last year in Smiths.

Ms Iris was alleged to have injured a finger as a result.

Mr Wilson, from Warwick, was also alleged to have told Ms Iris: “If you call the police you are going to get it”.

Senior magistrate Juan Wolffe released Mr Wilson on $2,000 bail and adjourned the case until February 8.

He ordered the defendant to have no contact with Ms Iris.
