Speargun used to terrorise woman

AN AGNES Water man shot at his partner with a speargun and terrorised her for hours, a Bundaberg court heard yesterday.

The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, did not enter a plea for breaching an order and wilful damage when a bail application was part heard in the Bundaberg Magistrates Court.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Barry Stevens said police received a call in the early hours of Monday morning saying the defendant was throwing property around the home.

Sgt Stevens said the couple went to a barbecue at a friend's house, where the man spat in the woman's face.

He said the man went home while the woman went to a friend's house.

When the woman returned home, the man allegedly began to throw items around.

Sgt Stevens said the man was locked out of the home twice but smashed windows in order to get to the woman, who had locked herself in the toilet.

The court heard about a week earlier the man had shot a speargun at the woman while she stood out the front of the house.

The shot missed.

Magistrate Jennifer Batts adjourned the bail application until Friday so the man could get legal advice.
