    A St Augustine man has been granted $75,000 bail over charges of assault and malicious damage.

    The man appeared in court on Wednesday and the matter was postponed to October 26th, 2022.

    As part of bail conditions, he must not communicate with the victim unless it’s about the welfare of their children, nor is he to behave in an aggressive manner to her.
