Oz Day as­sault: Man charged

Weekend Courier - - Front Page -

A ROCK­ING­HAM man has been charged over an as­sault at Wa­roona Dam on Aus­tralia Day.

The vic­tims were wo­ken by a loud dis­tur­bance at 11.45pm on Jan­uary 26 at a camp­site.

As they left their tents to in­ves­ti­gate, po­lice say they were as­saulted by the man.

A 43-year-old man re­ceived se­ri­ous in­juries, in­clud­ing bleed­ing on the brain, a bro­ken nose and lac­er­a­tions and a 29-year-old man sus­tained a head wound, which re­quired seven sta­ples to close.

Fre­man­tle de­tec­tives charged a 23-year-old Rock­ing­ham man as a re­sult of ex­ten­sive in­ves­ti­ga­tions into the as­sault.

The man has been charged with in­tent to harm, omit­ting to do any act that was the per­son’s duty to do or did an act as a re­sult of which the life, health or safety of any per­son was or was likely to be en­dan­gered.

He is due to ap­pear be­fore the Man­durah Mag­is­trates Court on May 18.
