Pair face vi­o­lence charges

North West Telegraph - - Telegraph News - Sophia Con­stan­tine

A male and fe­male charged with fam­ily vi­o­lence of­fences over an in­ci­dent in South Hed­land last year ap­peared in court last week.

It is un­der­stood the fe­male, 32, and male, 42, who had been to­gether for four-years, en­gaged in an al­co­hol­fu­elled ar­gu­ment at the Two-Mile Camp in South Hed­land in Novem­ber.

Po­lice al­leged one part­ner splashed hot oil onto the other while cook­ing, and in re­sponse, the other part­ner picked up a knife, stab­bing them­selves and the other party in the leg.

South Hed­land Se­nior Sergeant Al­lan Jane said po­lice had a zero-tol­er­ance ap­proach to fam­ily vi­o­lence.

“Po­lice will in­ter­vene to en­sure the safety of all mem­bers of the com­mu­nity, es­pe­cially those that can’t look af­ter them­selves, such as chil­dren.”

The pair are yet to be sen­tenced.
