A YOUNG Dawesville man with a history of assault pleaded guilty in Mandurah Magistrates Court today to an unprovoked bottle attack on his neighbour in 2016.
The police prosecutor told the court Travis Jackson Ryder (20) was staying with his niece in Dawesville on October 12 when he decided to knock on the neighbour’s door.
Ryder asked the victim to “share a bottle of drink” with him.
The victim told Ryder no, as he was going to bed.
The exchange prompted laughter from the victim’s stepdaughter who was inside.
Ryder made a sexually suggestive comment about the victim’s stepdaughter and was asked to leave.
That caused him to hit the victim once with the bottle he was holding.
Ryder was then aggressive toward police officers who dealt with him after the attack.
Ryder pleaded guilty to assault occasioning bodily harm, breaching bail soon after, giving false personal details to police and obstructing public officers.
Magistrate Matthew Walton told Ryder he could not behave like that.
He placed him on a six-month intensive supervision order with program requirements.
