Guilty plea to Sun City knife attack
A 41-year-old Spalding man has pleaded guilty to attacking a female staff member with a knife at a church-operated crisis accommodation centre.
Victor Garry Ronan appeared via video link in Geraldton Magistrate’s Court on Thursday and pleaded guilty to an act or admission causing bodily harm.
Police said the attack happened about 3.30pm on December 17 after the woman asked Ronan to leave Sun City Christian Centre’s supported accommodation centre.
She was treated at Geraldton Hospital and had stitches for a small cut to her face. He has since written her an apology letter.
He was remanded to appear for sentencing in the District Court on May 14 to allow the court to prepare a written pre-sentence report and a psychological report.
