Man con­victed for ‘ran­dom act of vi­o­lence’

Pinjarra Murray Times - - NEWS -

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.
