A Wilmington man who was arraigned last week on a charge of assault recently appeared again in Hillsboro Municipal Court on a traffic charge and was placed on a $50,000 bond.
An affidavit filed with the court stated that Stanley Lamb, 32, was first charged after an officer with the Hillsboro Police Department responded to a call on Sept. 10.
Upon arrival at a North West Street residence, the officer found that Lamb and the alleged victim “were having an altercation in the front yard,” according to the affidavit.
Following further investigation and witness statements, the officer reported that after Lamb drove by the residence and parked nearby, he allegedly “came down to the house, removed his shirt, went to the front porch, and struck (the alleged victim) on the side of the face,” as stated in the affidavit.
Lamb allegedly told the officer that “he did lightly strike (the alleged victim) with the back of his hand,” the affidavit added.
Lamb was charged with first-degree misdemeanor assault. He appeared on that charge last Friday.
At that time, his bond was set at his own recognizance (OR). Lamb was ordered to observe a curfew and to have no contact with the alleged victim or witnesses while his case is pending. He was also placed on reporting probation. A pretrial is set for next month.
A second affidavit shows that on Saturday Lamb was cited for driving on a suspension, an unclassified misdemeanor. According to records, a hearing for that case is also scheduled for October.
After appearing on his new charge Monday, Lamb’s bond on his assault case was set at $50,000, records show. If he posts that bond, he must report to the probation department.
