Crime spree fiend to stand trial

A MAN who went on a two-week crime spree across the Bundaberg region has been committed to stand trial in the district court.

Armin Rolf Hart, 30, of Hummock Road, faced Bundaberg Magistrates Court yesterday on 21 charges.

Police alleged Hart went on a rampage from Woodgate to Bundaberg in April this year, attacking several people, including a man on the Hummock.

He is also accused of detaining and robbing three female backpackers at Elliott Heads, forcing his way into a Woodgate house and assaulting a man in a restaurant.

Police Prosecutor Sergeant Barry Stevens handed up evidence including witness and police statements, security footage, photographs and photo boards.

Magistrate Jennifer Batts asked Hart if he had anything to say. “No comment and no plea,” he said.

Hart is charged with five counts of common assault, two counts of assault causing bodily harm, three of deprivation of liberty, three of robbery with actual violence, five of wilful damage, entering premises with intent, entering a dwelling and committing an indictable offence, and one count of acts intended to maim, disfigure or disable.

Hart did not apply for bail.
