EMBATTLED Manly fullback Brett Stewart has been ordered to stay away from his home for another month after having his interim apprehended violence order extended as the investigation into the alleged assault of a teen continues. Dressed in a suit and tie at Manly Local Court today, Stewart appeared uncomfortable and stared straight ahead throughout proceedings. Magistrate Margaret Quinn granted police a four-week extension, preventing the 24-year-old from returning to his North Manly home. Stewart has denied allegations that he sexually assaulted the 17-year-old at the same apartment complex after Manly's 2009 season launch last Friday. The 24-year-old had spent the entire afternoon at the function, where he was spotted drinking heavily with teammates. He returned to the complex in a taxi about 7.30pm. The girl and her father, both of whom cannot be named for legal reasons, have said she was smoking a cigarette at the front of the complex when Stewart arrived. Stewart was later arrested and taken to Dee Why police station. He declined to be interviewed and was released without charge. The NRL poster boy made his first appearance since Friday at Manly training yesterday. The court matter was today adjourned until April 7, with Stewart rushed from the court into a waiting car.
