A manaccused of attacking his friend with a machete was reacting in anger after having his bathroom smeared with faeces, a Wollongong court has heard.
Chilean national Cristian Adrian Celedon Carrasco, 38, faced Port Kembla Local Court Saturday morning charged with wounding the 48-year-old man with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
The court heard the men had been drinking at the Harp Hotel for two hours on Thursday night before they returned to Celedon’s Corrimal Street apartment.
Celedon allegedly went to the bathroom to check on the older man and found he haddefecated himself and was spreading faeces around the room.
Police allege Celedon armed himself with a large Gurkha-style knife and struck the man‘s right hand, cutting him to the bone, when he refused to clean up the mess.
The court heard Celedon then ejected the man from the unit and threw his pants into the complex stairwell.
The victim left the unit bleeding profusely, wearing only a shirt, and walked to Wollongong Police Station.
Police officers had great difficulty obtaining details of what had happened.
The man’s blood trail led them to Celedon’s unit.
The court heard Celedon, who speaks only limited English, had provided conflicting versions of what had happened, via Spanish-speaking interpreters.
He was granted bail on condition that he not consume alcohol during his period of remand and avoid ports of departure.
He must also comply with an apprehended violence order that prohibits him from going within 100 metres of the alleged victim.
