Screwdriver attack teen now accused of using axe in fight
A TEEN who was jailed for stabbing a man with a screwdriver in an unprovoked attack is now accused of brandishing an axe at a man during a fight.
During 19-year-old Brody David Marston's failed bail application, Magistrate Haydn Stjernqvist told the court Marston was jailed for 18 months in December for assault occasioning bodily harm while armed in company, but was released on parole in April.
He punched a man in the back "five to six times" while holding a screwdriver at the Currimundi Hotel.
The man suffered wounds to his shoulder and neck.
Mr Marston is now facing single counts of going armed to cause fear, assault occasioning bodily harm while armed and in company and stealing.
Mr Stjernqvist denied Mr Marston bail, saying he posed an "unacceptable risk of endangering the community".
Mr Marston's grandparents were in court in support of him, but he wasn't required to appear in person.
The court heard Mr Marston and three co-accused, including one juvenile, had been charged over the alleged attack which took place both in and outside a house in Caloundra.
It's alleged Mr Marston king hit a man while he was outside and the group "set upon" him while he was on the ground.
Mr Marston then allegedly came back with an axe and brandished it at the man.
He suffered a fractured eye socket, a laceration above his eye, bruising and swelling.
Mr Marston surrendered himself to police, but refused to partake in an interview.
Lawyer Lachlan Ygoa-McKeown told the court CCTV of the incident didn't assist other than to show there was a scuffle as no one in the footage could be identified.
He said his client would be contesting the charges.
Even if granted bail, Mr Marston would remain in prison until his parole was reinstated.
Mr Marston's case will be mentioned again on October 17.
