Dis­pute ended with al­leged hand­bag as­sault

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

A HAND­BAG seems an un­likely weapon for a coun­try bloke in his 60s.

But after al­legedly beat­ing a 46-year-old woman with her own hand­bag dur­ing a dis­pute last Thurs­day, a Monto man has been charged with as­sault caus­ing bod­ily harm.

“The man was the land­lord of the prop­erty and was vis­it­ing a ten­ant,” Act­ing Po­lice Sergeant Martin Darby said.

“But he be­came up­set when an al­legedly un­in­vited guest en­tered the dwelling, and that led to this in­ci­dent oc­cur­ring.”

The woman was left with a small amount of bruis­ing to her head. The al­leged at­tacker will ap­pear in the Monto Mag­is­trates Court at the end of Fe­bru­ary.
