Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

A 20-year-old man ac­cused of bur­glary and sex­ual as­sault in Wick­ham on May 23 faced court last Thurs­day.

West Pil­bara De­tec­tives and Roe­bourne po­lice charged a man from Bayn­ton with sex­ual pen­e­tra­tion with­out con­sent and ag­gra­vated bur­glary.

The man ap­peared in Kar­ratha Mag­is­trate’s Court, where he ap­plied for and was granted bail.

Mag­is­trate Robert Young said he was pre­pared to grant bail on the grounds the al­leged bur­glary had not been ran­dom, re­duc­ing the risk of sim­i­lar re-of­fend­ing.

The ac­cused’s bail was sub­ject to strict con­di­tions, in­clud­ing stay­ing away from the al­leged vic­tim and the towns of Roe­bourne and Wick­ham.
