While on bail for ‘attacking cop,’ Home & Away kid actor Felix Dean ‘battered shopkeeper with hammer.’
A CHILD HOME AND AWAY star has been arrested for allegedly hammering a shopkeeper while on bail for allegedly assaulting a cop.
Felix Dean, 24, armed with a hammer, entered a tobacco shop in Surry Hills, Australia, shortly after 11 p.m. on Monday and smacked a worker, according to police.
The male employee received minor head injuries and was treated by paramedics on the scene.
Dean, who played VJ Patterson on the drama from 2007 to 2014, was apprehended nearby.
According to news.com.au, he was arrested and charged with affray, assault occasioning actual bodily harm, two charges of common assault, shoplifting, armed with intent to conduct indictable offence, and breach of bail at the Surry Hills police station.
Dean’s bail was denied, and he was scheduled to appear in Central Local Court today.
The former star was already out on bail for two earlier attacks, with tight conditions such as a curfew of 6 p.m.
When a cop sought to arrest him in September after a fight with another man in Paddington, he allegedly “got violent,” kicking the officer in the leg.
Dean was subsequently transported to Surry Hills Police Station, where he was charged with assaulting a police officer while on duty, breaching his release conditions, and failing to follow Covid rules.
Separately, in January, he was charged with attempting to assault and rob a ride-share driver in Newtown.
Dean was accused of aggravated assault with the purpose to rob, common assault, and property damage.
When he joined the cast of Home and Away at the age of ten, he played the son of actress Ada Nicodemou’s character Lea.
He quit the show in 2014 and hasn’t appeared on any other projects since.
