A PORT Fairy man was yesterday remanded in custody after allegedly seriously injuring a woman while on bail.
Corey David Huntly, 19, of Bank Street, appeared in the Hamilton Magistrates Court where he was remanded to appear in the Warrnambool court on March 19.
Mr Huntly had been on bail after being charged with assault and serious traffic offences, including reckless conduct endangering life.
Police allege that on Monday this week Mr Huntly went to a house in Port Fairy’s Elizabeth Street where it is claimed he assaulted the same woman he was on bail for allegedly assaulting previously.
Mr Huntly was spoken to by police about 7pm Monday but fled and could not be found.
At 2pm the next day police found Mr Huntly hiding in a house in Barclay Street, Port Fairy.
He was arrested and taken to Warrnambool police station and held in custody overnight before appearing in court yesterday before Magistrate Jonathan Klestadt.
Police alleged the female victim suffered significant injuries.
Mr Huntly is now facing two charges of intentionally causing injury, recklessly causing serious injury, making a threat to kill, unlawful assault, resisting police and interfering with a witness.
Under the conditions of his previous bail set on January 29, Mr Huntly’s vehicle was impounded and he had to surrender the vehicle by March 4, but had not done so.
The vehicle was impounded on Tuesday for one month.
