The 19-year-old man accused of ‘indecently attacking’ a young boy at a South West shopping centre toilet has been excused from attending court. The man, whose identity has been suppressed by the Bunbury Magistrates Court, did not appear in court on Thursday but was represented by defence counsel Paul Chapman. The man is accused of several charges including indecently dealing with a child aged under 13 years, three counts of aggravated common assault and deprivation of liberty, stemming from an incident in November. During the brief hearing, Mr Chapman sought a 10-week adjournment to obtain a legally aided neuropsychological report for his client. The adjournment was granted and the man’s bail, which bars him from attending the Dalyellup Shopping Centre or have contact with children, was extended in his absence. Magistrate Belinda Coleman also granted leave for the man to be excused from attending court during his next appearance in April although it was understood he would need to attend when he eventually enters his pleas. Police alleged the man entered a public toilet inside Dalyellup Shopping Centre on the afternoon of November 23 and while inside the toilet he allegedly held an 11-year-old boy against his will and assaulted the boy. It was alleged the man was accompanied by a female support worker at the time of offending when he entered the public toilets alone. During his first appearance in court, it was submitted the man had “significant intellectual disabilities” including ADHD, autism spectrum disorder and chromosomal abnormalities.
