A 38-year-old man has been denied bail after allegedly threatening residents at his Rockingham home with scissors and swearing at police officers. Daniel Gary Wray appeared in custody at Rockingham Magistrates Court last week charged with being armed in a way that may cause fear and disorderly behaviour by using insulting, offensive or threatening language. Mr Wray gave an impassioned speech while pleading for bail, and trying to convince the magistrate that he would abide by all orders if he was allowed out on bail. Police prosecutor Sergeant Naomi Foster said on July 13 Mr Wray entered the unit complex in Rockingham “armed with a pair of scissors”. He allegedly approached the witness in the complex asking them to fight him, but the person went back inside and called the police. The police went to the home and Mr Wray asked to go to hospital, however after they arrived they say he began to “swear excessively” at police and had to be removed from the premises. Sgt Foster said she was opposed to bail because numerous tenants at the address didn’t want him to return and if he was convicted of these offences he would be in breach of two suspended imprisonment orders and would likely face jail. Mr Wray denied the charges and said that he “shouldn’t have to leave his house” and that “they’re all drug dealers that live there, I’m not”. “I’ve been doing the right thing, the woman punched my head in 20 times and I lost consciousness which CCTV will prove,” Mr Wray said. “I would be willing to abide by a curfew, do urine analysis and sign in every day if I have to. They did this not me, I won’t leave my house I promise.” Magistrate Vivien Edwards said she heard what Mr Wray said, however due to his prior record of order beaches it would be inappropriate to grant bail. Mr Wray was remanded to July 23 to appear via video link.
