Teenager accused of stabbing denied bail

A TEENAGER accused of stabbing a 21-year-old man during an altercation has been remanded in custody.

Dean Roger Harvey, 17, appeared in the docks of Bundaberg Magistrates Court yesterday, on one charge of unlawful wounding.

Lawyer Mary Buchanan made an application for bail on behalf of Harvey, which was opposed by the prosecution.

Police will allege Harvey stabbed the man with a knife at a home in Rossolini St, in Bundaberg South, on Monday.

He was found by detectives at a block of units on McMannie St, not far from where the alleged incident happened, hiding in a bathroom late on Thursday.

Ms Buchanan said while she did not want to discuss the evidence of a case, her client had instructed her that he didn't have a knife on him and that the other party had started the fight.

"He has some marks on him - skin off his knee and a sore lip," she said.

Ms Buchanan told Magistrate Deborah Vasta that Harvey had been on probation at the time of the alleged offence.

"(He instructs) the last thing he would be doing is starting a fight," Ms Buchanan said.

The lawyer said Harvey had only just recently moved back to Bundaberg and was living with his dad.

"He does intend to look for work," she said.

"He would be willing to agree to a bail undertaking."

The court heard the 21-year-old man received a stitch in his leg, just below his bottom.

Mrs Vasta took into account the serious nature of the offence, and the fact she had only placed Harvey on probation last week, before refusing him bail.

She set the matter down for further mention at 9am on December 17.
