The trial date for Michael Samuel, charged with attacking a school principal, has been postponed until November.

Samuel allegedly assaulted Christopher Roberts, the principal of Mary E Pigott Primary School, and damaged his $1,000 gold chain in March.

The incident occurred after Samuel’s son was suspended for misconduct, prompting him to confront Principal Roberts.

Reports suggest that Samuel struck Roberts from behind, threatened him, and engaged in a physical altercation.

Samuel, who pleaded not guilty, was originally scheduled for trial in August, but the proceedings will now take place on November 2.
