Son in court for assaulting father

A 23-year-old man has been placed on $30,000 bail after appearing in court on allegations of wounding, when he hit his father on the head with a wine bottle.

The incident was said to have stemmed from a confrontation between the two relatives on Monday at their Hubert Rance Street, Vistabella, home.

As a result, the suspect, Joseph Oudit, was arrested and charged.

He was represented by defence attorney Ainsley Lucky.

The court was told that the incident reportedly took place while the father and son were having a few drinks together.

After further submissions, the court requested that Oudit keep a safe distance away from his father to prevent any further escalation.

The matter was then adjourned to May 10.
