Jarrod Davies investigation update
Investigations have continued in relation to the tragic death of Victorian man, Jarrod Davies, at the weekend.
Police have been focussing on the movements of Mr Davies earlier in the night, prior to him walking to the Elizabeth Street Pier. Those background enquiries established that Mr Davies attended the Observatory Bar, and while there was involved in an altercation inside.
As a result of that particular aspect of the investigation, police have now charged a 28 year old man from Geilston Bay with one count of common assault. He will appear in the Hobart Magistrates Court in March.
Police investigations show there is a separation between the events surrounding the alleged assault and Mr Davies’ last movements.
As this matter is now before the courts, and also subject to Coronial proceedings, no further comment will be provided.
