Growler angry at no bail decision

PATRICK Mitchell yesterday banged his head on the perspex barrier around the dock at Albury Local Court after he was refused bail on two dom-estic assault charges.

He responded angrily after an unsuccessful bail application before magistrate Tony Murray, who was told Mitchell had a criminal history littered with such offences.

Solicitor Tim Hemsley said when speaking to Mitchell in the cells, he had displayed disturbing behaviour attempting self-harm by hitting his head on a wall and growling.

Mitchell, 28, of Alexandra Street, has been charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm against a woman he has been in a relationship with for six months.

A charge of assault and two counts of contravening an apprehended violence order relate to Mitchell’s former de facto partner.

It is alleged those off-ences happened on Monday and the assault involved him spitting on her, but he has denied the allegation.

Mr Murray was told in tendered police facts that Mitchell had been walking along East Street with his new partner on Nov-ember 14.

He was stopped by three men, a fight began and Mitchell was punched and kicked a number of times while on the ground.

“You set me up,” Mitchell later told the woman, but she denied the allegation.

He told her to get inside his house because he was going to belt her.

But he put his arms around her, cuddled her and without warning bit her on the right cheekbone.

Mitchell started walking around the yard growling and the victim went inside to sit on a lounge.

He demanded money, she gave him $100 and he said: “Where is my axe? I’m going to chop you up.”

He picked up a guitar stand and struck her with it. She received further blows from Mitchell who had been armed with a didgeridoo and a long thin piece of wood.

He threw a pedestal fan which had hit the woman in the buttocks.

She ran out of the house and hid in bushes about five houses away.

Mitchell was arrested and interviewed, but denied the incident.

Mr Murray adjourned the charges until December 8 with Mitchell to appear through a video link from jail.
