Man accused of 'nudie run' from court denied bail

A MAN accused of making a "nudie run" to freedom has not applied for bail after being brought into custody.

Dean Andrew Kenning, 29, was not brought into Maroochydore Magistrates Court from the watch house on Tuesday for a mention of escape lawful custody and serious assault of police charges.

Mr Kenning was appearing in court before Magistrate Haydn Stjernqvist on Monday on other charges when he is alleged to have escaped from a court room dock.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Shane Raison, who was also in court on Monday, is alleged to have sustained a cut to his head as a result of the incident.

The court on Tuesday heard Sgt Raison had been taken to hospital where he had four stitches put in to treat the wound.

Sgt Raison was suffering from a headache on Monday night and was not at work on Tuesday.

Mr Stjernqvist indicated Mr Kenning did not have clothes on when he allegedly escaped.

"One nudie run and everyone gets excited," Mr Stjernqvist said.

Police said Mr Kenning was arrested in Mooloolaba on Monday night.

Duty lawyer David Kolbe did not apply for bail on behalf of Mr Kenning.

Mr Kenning's matters were adjourned until November 9.

"He needs to concentrate on what he's got before the court, which he hasn't been doing of course," Mr Stjernqvist said.
