Man arrested for cowardly hammer attack on Adelaide grandfather

Man arrested for cowardly hammer attack on Adelaide grandfather

After a week-long police manhunt, Darryl Trevor St Clair has been charged with aggravated robbery, aggravated assault, and illegal use of a motor vehicle following a horrifying incident that occurred on Monday, October 11.

It is alleged that St Clair arrived on the doorstep of a man in his 70s and asked if he could give him a lift to a local address. The elderly man then agreed, and the pair drove away in his white Ford Falcon.

CCTV footage from a home in view of the crash site shows a middle-aged attacker dragging the elderly victim from his car and continuing to assault him before stealing his white Ford Falcon and fleeing the scene.

St Clair appeared in court yesterday but did not apply for bail. He will remain in custody until his next court appearance, which is slated for December.
