A MAN who admitted three assault charges, has had sentence deferred for reports.

Ahmad Awad, 28, of Hillend Drive, admitted assaulting three people in Leishman Place, on September 6, and also behaving in a threatening or abusive manner in the town’s Fraser Avenue.

“The concerning feature is he can’t recall any of this, such was his state of intoxication,” explained defence solicitor Ross Dow.

Awad was granted bail and sentence deferred until November 1.
