Man barred from school after 'attack'

A MAN has been banned from attending his child's primary school after he allegedly assaulted another parent outside the school in Clifton.

The Clifton State School principal called police for help when the disturbance started outside the school entrance in Edward St at 9am on Friday.

Clifton police officer-in-charge Guy Smidt said the 38-year-old victim was in the process of getting inside his vehicle when the 33-year-old offender allegedly attacked him.

Sergeant Smidt said the man kicked the driver's side door of the victim's car, causing it to slam shut on his leg. He sustained minor bruising to his right lower leg.

The offender also allegedly broke the driver's side mirror.

“This caused a lot of distress to several young students who observed the incident,” Sgt Smidt said.

“They ran into the school upset.”

Police arrested the man on Sunday and he was charged with common assault, wilful damage and committing a public-nuisance offence.

He was given bail and will appear in the Warwick Magistrates Court on September 13.

Sgt Smidt said the man was forbidden from attending the school before his court appearance as part of his bail conditions.

The incident relates to an ongoing feud between family members of the victim and offender.
