MAN REFUSED BAIL OVER LARCENY AND ASSAULT

A man has been accused of stealing more than $300 worth of groceries from a shopping centre he was already banned from entering until 2020.

The 40-year-old allegedly stuffed the goods into his backpack and ran from the Lismore Square complex yesterday afternoon.

Later that day, police say he assaulted a security guard at nearby Lismore Base Hospital.

He faced court today and was refused bail.
