Cafe attack case adjourned

A SCOTTISH tourist may plead guilty to an alleged ''glassing'' incident outside a St Kilda cafe.

Richard James Goldie, 23, of St Kilda, appeared in a Melbourne court Monday charged with intentionally and also recklessly causing injury. Goldie (pictured) is alleged to have struck Daniel King with a glass in Acland Street about 1.30am last Thursday.

Defence lawyer Andrew Halphen applied in Melbourne Magistrates Court to adjourn the charges so negotiations could continue to settle the matter.

Mr Halphen also said he needed time to obtain material for a plea hearing and to ''get the matter resolved''.

It is believed Mr King suffered three lacerations, but none that required stitches.

Police prosecutor Leading Senior Constable Jim Wilson did not oppose the application.

Magistrate Angela Bolger extended Goldie's bail, which included a condition that he surrender his passport. He will appear again next Monday.

Goldie appeared wearing a white shirt, carrying a backpack and with a finger heavily bandaged.
