Man convicted for ‘random act of violence’
A MANDURAH man was ordered to complete community service after he was convicted of punching another man and breaking his jaw in an unprovoked attack on January 21.
The police prosecutor told the court Harrison Bradley Cummins (26) was with a friend waiting at the taxi rank on Mandurah Terrace after 12.58am.
The victim approached Cummins’ friend and shook his hand. Cummins punched the victim to the right side of his head and fractured his jaw.
On March 29, Cummins was arrested and taken to Mandurah Police Station.
His lawyer told the court Cummins had been out drinking and had no recollection of his actions.
Magistrate Anne Longden described the attack as a “random act of violence”.
“It’s concerning you do not recall the circumstances,” she said. “There are issues you need to work on.”
She sentenced Cummins to a 12month intensive supervision order with program and supervision requirements. Cummins will have to complete 150 hours of community service.
