23-yr-old Spartaco Marciano Di Bella made a short appearance before Magistrate Farnan who set the next hearing date on January 14 next year to allow for briefs to be prepared. Bail was continued.

Outside the court, Di Bella was asked by media if he felt sorry that the group had been. He replied “Of course” In between a barrage of questions from media and “no comment” responses from the accused, Di Bella did say that he felt remorse for the families.

Shortly after midnight on October 26, four men ranging from 27 to 66 and a 62-hr-old woman were bashed by a group of men as they headed home after Shabbat dinner. The men were wearing yarmulkes and one had a beard.

Robert Tamaki Clifford, 26, remains in custody charged with assault occasioning grievous bodily harm. He has also been charged with being in possession of a knife in a public place.

Also in custody are two 17-yr-olds charged with affray and breach of bail. They cannot be named.

The brawl was allegedly preceded by a barrage of anti-Semitic remarks made to the group.

Di Bella appeared in court obj crutches.
