April 10, 2018

Appearing in Magistrates Court, a 27-year-old man who assaulted his mother has been remanded to appear before Mental Health Court.

Eric Richardson repeatedly punched his mother in April of this year.

Magistrates’ Court heard that Richardson had taken his mother’s cell phone after she had refused to let him use it, and then had turned violent when she tried to get the phone back.

She was struck three times during the assault and suffered bruising to the head and left wrist.

Today at court Richardson pled guilty to unlawfully assaulting her.

Asked if there was anything he wanted to say about the incident he replied: “I don’t want to go to jail or nothing. If I think crazy I act crazy.”

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo remanded Richardson to appear at Mental Health Court on Thursday. He also ordered pre-sentencing reports and a mental health assessment to be completed.
