Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

A man has been ac­cused of stab­bing his fe­male part­ner in the wrist with a kitchen knife, sev­er­ing an artery and caus­ing sig­nif­i­cant blood loss, in an al­leged case of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence in Roe­bourne.

The 27-year-old man has been charged with one count of ag­gra­vated griev­ous bod­ily harm for the al­leged in­ci­dent, which re­quired the 40-year-old woman to be flown to Perth for surgery.

Po­lice al­lege the pair were ar­gu­ing at a Roe­bourne prop­erty about 11am on Novem­ber 5 when the woman walked out­side and held the front screen door shut be­hind her.

They al­lege her male part­ner picked up a kitchen knife and struck her wrist through a gap in the door­way.

The knife al­legedly caused a deep cut in the woman’s wrist, hit­ting an artery and caus­ing sig­nif­i­cant blood loss.

The in­jured woman has since flown to Perth for surgery.

The man is due to reap­pear in Kar­ratha Mag­is­trate’s Court this week.
