A Buninyong man facing charges relating to the alleged ramming of a police vehicle in Ballarat last week has been released on bail.
Mark Krjutschkow-Wood, 21, faced the Ballarat Magistrates Court yesterday where he made a second application for bail following an unsuccessful attempt last week.
Defence lawyer Erin Ramsay said with access to relevant social services, her client would no longer be an unacceptable risk to the community.
Police did not oppose the bail application. In the earlier court appearance, police claimed Krjutschkow-Wood had been searching for a police officer to steal a gun from so he could “start shooting”, when he allegedly rammed a divisional van with his vehicle last Wednesday night.
Magistrate Gregory McNamara granted bail on the conditions Krjutschkow-Wood comply with the directions of the credit-bail program, comply with directions of psychiatric services and not leave his residential address without the company of his grandmother or her partner.
He will return to court on October 5.
