Man faces court for injuring complainant's eye

A man accused of punching another in his face, causing an eye injury, had his bail extended in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court last Thursday.

Michael Phillips, charged with unlawful wounding, is to return to court on July 14 with compensation for the complainant.

The court heard that, the accused had punched the complainant during a dispute.

The complainant told the court he has been unable to work, because of his injury, and wanted to be compensated.

"Your Honour, I didn't pay much at hospital, but I had to buy medication and I lost a week's pay, because its a driving job that I do," the complainant said.

Phillips agreed to compensate the complainant and is to pay over $20,000 on the next court date.
