A WARRNAMBOOL man who allegedly punched his daughter in an argument over bikies has been remanded in custody until September 15.

Darren Leslie Wallace, 46, of Wanstead Street, unsuccessfully applied for bail in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court yesterday after being charged with recklessly causing injury and assault.

He was also previously charged with aggravated burglary, which is listed for a committal mention hearing on September 15.

Mr Wallace told the court that because he was not released from custody on Monday he could not provide additional information requested by the court. 

Magistrate John Lesser had adjourned the application on Monday part-heard after he decided Mr Wallace had not shown why he should not be locked up, or countered the argument of police that he was an unacceptable risk of reoffending.

It is alleged Mr Wallace, his daughter and a friend were drinking at a Timor Street home when they argued over bikies at 1.30am last Saturday. Mr Wallace allegedly pushed her against a wall of a lounge room with his arm across her throat.

The fight then continued outside and the alleged victim kicked Mr Wallace’s car before he punched her to the head, causing her to black out and fall to the ground.

Police allege Mr Wallace was already on bail after being charged with committing the aggravated burglary on May 21.
