Licensee charged with attempted murder of a disc jockey is refused bail

A 37-year-old Seaton pub landlord appeared in court yesterday (Monday, January 6) charged with the attempted murder of a disc jockey.

Raoul East is accused of trying to kill Andrew Hinds, who is in his 40s, following an alleged knife attack at the Vault Bar, near the seafront, in the early hours of Sunday.

The victim, who was a DJ at the pub, suffered a stab wound to his chest and was taken to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital where his condition was later said not to be life threatening.

Exeter magistrates remanded East in custody until later this month when he will appear at Exeter Crown Court. Bail was rejected by the magistrates.
