Sen­tence for vi­o­lent home in­va­sion is pend­ing

Pilbara News - - News - Staff re­porters

A Bayn­ton man has en­tered pleas of guilty to two charges stem­ming from a New Year’s Day home in­va­sion and as­sault, and will ap­pear be­fore the Supreme Court for sen­tenc­ing later this year.

Robert Bruce An­gus, 56, ap­peared in Perth Stir­ling Gar­dens Mag­is­trate’s Court on charges of ag­gra­vated armed rob­bery and griev­ous bod­ily harm, last Wed­nes­day.

He had pre­vi­ously en­tered pleas of guilty to both charges.

The charges stem from an al­leged in­ci­dent at a Bul­garra home on the evening of Jan­uary 1, when po­lice claim An­gus and three other men as­saulted a 28-year-old man, some us­ing weapons, and stole thou­sands of dol­lars and other valu­ables from the prop­erty.

The man was taken to hos­pi­tal as a re­sult of se­ri­ous fa­cial and body in­juries.

An­gus has been re­manded in cus­tody and is next due to ap­pear be­fore the WA Supreme Court on Oc­to­ber 3.
