Alexandra Burke’s brother 19-year-old Aaron Burke has been barred from going to his north London home of Islington after an attack on his mother, Melissa Bell, and sister on 5 December.
Aaron allegedly shoved his mother before attacking his sister Sheniece, 26, by grabbing her hair and hitting her in the face when she attempted to stop the altercation. Aaron was put under bail conditions after also allegedly threatening his brother David with a knife.
Aaron appeared at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court on Wednesday, where it was heard that his sister Sheniece informed police that she wanted to withdraw her witness statement. District Judge Ian Barker read her statement saying,
She thinks he has mental health problems and needs anger management help, and maybe drug rehabilitation.
Aisha Faruqi, defending said Aaron Burke had an “issue” with cannabis.Though Aaron denies assaulting his mother and sister, Judge Barker remanded him in custody until February 22 saying that things were ‘too volatile’ for him to be released.
A family firm told The Sun
Melissa’s in a bad way and this is the final straw. It’s tearing them apart.
