BODY MODIFIER ACCUSED OF ‘GENITAL MUTILATION’ FACES COURT

A man charged with genital mutilation fronted court for the first time today.

37-year-old Brendan Russell is accused of performing a procedure on a woman at a Newcastle tattoo parlour in 2016 – she later lodged a formal complaint.

Police raided his shop at Erina and arrested him earlier this month.

Russell didn’t enter a plea during his brief appearance at Gosford Local Court this morning.

The matter was adjourned until July 20.
