Former cricketer Michael Slater has been hit with charges including assault following an alleged “domestic violence” incident last month.
Former cricketer Michael Slater has been charged with assault and stalking/intimidating a woman following an incident last month.
Slater was formally arrested at Sydney’s Manly police station early on Friday morning, after police were called to a unit in Manly on April 26.
Slater appeared before a magistrate later on Friday, where he entered a plea of not guilty.
The alleged assault occurred just hours after charges relating to a separate incident in 2021 were dismissed on mental health grounds.
“About 9.20pm (Tuesday 26 April 2022), officers attached to Northern Beaches Police Area Command were called to a unit on West Promenade, Manly,” police said in a statement.
“On arrival, police were told a 52-year-old man had allegedly assaulted a 35-year-old woman.”
The former Australian Test batsmen was on Friday granted conditional bail and ordered not to contact the alleged victim or use any alcohol or illicit drugs.
Police have also applied for a provisional apprehended violence order to protect the alleged victim.
Mr Slater will return to court to fight the charges in January next year.
