Teen fractured skull at McDonalds

A MAN accused of punching a teenager at an Ipswich fast food restaurant, leaving him with a fractured skull, may apply for bail today. Darryl Steven Dunbar, 31, is accused of assaulting a 19-year-old at McDonald’s on Limestone Street about 1.30am on Sunday.

The 19-year-old Riverview man was taken to Ipswich Hospital and rushed to Princess Alexandra Hospital with a fractured skull.

The teen was in a serious but stable condition yesterday.

Dunbar was not required to appear in Ipswich Magistrate’s Court during the first mention of his case yesterday. Defence lawyer Matthew Fairclough asked for an adjournment until today to allow time for a mental-health assessment to be performed on his client before possibly making a bail application today.

Dunbar was remanded in custody to reappear in court this morning.

He faces a charge of grievous bodily harm but has not yet entered a plea.
