A wounding incident and an offence of grievous bodily harm in
which a 33-year-old man poured hot water on his sister are being
investigated by the Police.
In the first incident, a 911 emergency operator telephoned the

had been stabbed multiple times about the body.
This offence reportedly occurred at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, October
29, at Cashew Hill.
Officers went on duty and interviewed the victim, who reported
that, while he was walking in the village, he had been approached by
a man whom he knows and they had gotten into an altercation.

alleged perpetrators were not found. 
Meanwhile, a 36-year-old Bolans woman telephoned the local police
station and reported that her younger brother, of the same address,
had poured a pot of hot water over her back.

The woman was transported to the hospital and spoke with the
Police from the Casualty Department.

She complained that, while she was walking on the Valley Road, in
the vicinity of the Bolans Playing Field, her brother approached her
with a pot in his hand.
Reportedly, shortly after, he poured the hot water over her back
and, as a result, she fell to the ground. At this time her sibling
allegedly began to kick her about the body.
Officers subsequently conducted a search for the alleged offender
but without success.
This offence reportedly occurred at about 4:30 p.m. on Sunday,
October 29, at Bolans.
