A 39-year-old man yesterday appeared at the Labasa Magistrates Court facing assault charges.

Roneel Singh is charged with one count of serious assault and one count with intend to cause grievous bodily harm.

Magistrate Thushara Thennakoon told the accused the issue was a matter for the evidence to decide.

It is alleged that last Friday night, Singh entered his house at Siberia drunk and caused  an argument with his wife leading to a knifing incident.

Their eldest daughter called the Labasa Police Station and sustained injuries to her hands and head while her mother had injuries to her hands and leg.

On Sunday, the 17-year-old girl was transferred to CWM Hospital for further treatment while her mother is in a stable condition at the Labasa Hospital.

Magistrate Thennakoon advised Singh to seek assistance from the Legal Aid Commission as the allegations levelled against him were serious.

The case has been transferred to Labasa High Court  for mention on March 16.
