Pilbara News - - News - Alicia Per­era

Bail has been de­nied to a man charged in re­la­tion to a vi­o­lent home in­va­sion in Peg’s Creek last month.

Mark An­thony Ibardaloza, 28, from Peg’s Creek, was re­manded in cus­tody af­ter his ar­rest on charges of griev­ous bod­ily harm, ag­gra­vated home bur­glary and prop­erty dam­age, but ap­plied for bail in Kar­ratha Mag­is­trate’s Court last week.

Po­lice al­lege Mr Ibardaloza, with two other men, broke into a Peg’s Creek home where they slashed the throat of a 32-year-old man with a machete and bashed him.

Mag­is­trate Richard Hus­ton said he re­fused bail be­cause of the se­ri­ous­ness of the al­leged of­fence.

A co-ac­cused, Nathan An­thony Oak­ley, 28, from Wick­ham, was also re­manded in cus­tody af­ter ap­pear­ing be­fore court by video link last week.

His Le­gal Aid lawyer Brooke So­jan said her client was likely to make a bail ap­pli­ca­tion at his next ap­pear­ance be­fore the court.
