A Geraldton man accused of a violent attack on his partner — which included allegedly stomping on her head, threatening to cut her throat and leaving her with a broken jaw and eye socket — has been allowed to walk free on bail. Laurence Scott Turvey, 19, appeared in Geraldton Magistrate’s Court yesterday after being charged with threatening to kill and doing grievous bodily harm to a person. Prosecutor Sgt Beau Jones told the court a 19-year-old woman — who was in a domestic relationship with Mr Turvey — returned to her Wandina home about 1am on August 20, when Mr Turvey followed her into the house. Police allege he then punched her multiple times to her face and body before holding a broken piece of mirror to her throat, threatening to “cut” her. Sgt Jones said Mr Turvey allegedly dragged the woman around the house by her hair and stomped on her head while wearing shoes. The woman was able to run from the house and call police before she was flown to Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital in Perth. She had clumps of hair missing and was treated for a broken jaw and fractured eye socket among other injuries. Police opposed bail, saying the woman’s safety would be at risk if Mr Turvey was released from custody. Lawyer Georgia Keysers said Mr Turvey “does not recall the incident” and woke up with several injuries on Sunday. Ms Keysers said Mr Turvey was a young man with no adult criminal record who could work if bailed. Magistrate Raelene Johnston said the allegations were “very serious” but was satisfied bail conditions could be imposed to protect the alleged victim from harm. She ordered Mr Turvey to comply with random drug and alcohol testing while on bail. He had to provide a $1000 surety and was ordered to stay away from and not attempt to contact the woman. He will next appear in court on September 9.
