A Geraldton man accused of violently slamming his ex-partner’s head into concrete paving during an attack earlier this month has been given bail to care for his sick father. Prosecutor Sgt Paul Burkinshaw said in Geraldton Magistrate’s Court last week police were waiting to receive a medical report on the woman’s injuries that would decide whether charges against Sydney Joseph Harris would be upgraded. It is alleged he was served a 48-hour police order not to communicate with or approach the woman after an argument at 4.30am on July 3. Two days later, police say Mr Harris attended the woman’s Rangeway house and shortly after began verbally abusing her before throwing a glass bottle at the back of her head when she tried to leave. Sgt Burkinshaw said the bottle “smacked” into the woman’s head and Mr Harris tried to throw another bottle which missed. “It’s alleged he then grabbed her head and body slammed her to the concrete, knocking her unconscious,” he said. Mr Harris allegedly attempted to flee police when he was arrested later that day and charged with two counts of breaching a police order and aggravated unlawful assault occasioning bodily harm. His lawyer, Georgia Keysers, previously told the court he was intending to plead guilty to all charges, but this was stopped by Magistrate Chris Miocevich, who said the court should wait and see if the charges would change. She told the court Mr Harris’ father had recently been discharged from hospital and wanted his son to be his full-time carer. He was granted bail under strict conditions to live at his father’s house but has been banned from approaching or speaking to the woman and drinking alcohol. “I’m only releasing you if you abide by these conditions,” Mr Miocevich said. “This is your chance to look after your dad. You breach these, you run the risk you’ll be sent back to Greenough.” He will return to court on August 5.
