Weekend Courier - - Front Page -

ROCK­ING­HAM De­tec­tives have charged a woman with ram­ming a ve­hi­cle into a Cooloongup house on Tues­day af­ter­noon.

About 12.30pm, Belinda Jayne Forsyth (38) vis­ited a res­i­dence in Breaden Drive.

It will be al­leged she was at the home to speak to a per­son known to her.

Po­lice claim the woman used her ve­hi­cle to ram the garage door and then tried to hit the male res­i­dent with her ve­hi­cle.

The ve­hi­cle struck a fence and dam­aged a front wall of the house.

At the time of the in­ci­dent, two young chil­dren were present.

One of the chil­dren suf­fered cuts and bruises as a re­sult of bricks, glass and de­bris hit­ting his legs.

It is al­leged Ms Forsyth left the scene of the in­ci­dent in the ve­hi­cle.

Po­lice at­tended and con­ducted a patrol of the area. They found the ve­hi­cle in­volved at a Warn­bro house.

Ms Forsyth, of Rock­ing­ham, has been charged with reck­less driv­ing, ag­gra­vated as­sault with in­tent to do griev­ous bod­ily harm, en­dan­ger life, health or safety of a per­son, crim­i­nal dam­age or de­struc­tion of prop­erty and un­law­ful dam­age.

She was re­fused bail and ap­peared in Rock­ing­ham Mag­is­trates Court on Wed­nes­day, where she was or­dered to reap­pear on July 26.

There was struc­tural dam­age to the house and a Rock­ing­ham Kwinana State Emer­gency Ser­vice crew propped up the roof.

The house in Breaden Drive was boarded up after a ve­hi­cle rammed into it.
