UNTIL Wednesday, Tyone Royce Biggs had been on an alleged crime spree for almost a fortnight and was unlikely to comply with any conditions if released on bail, a court was told yesterday.
Police prosecutor Sgt Tanya Eade opposed bail for Biggs when he appeared in Albury Local Court on 11 charges.
It is alleged Biggs had breached an apprehended violence order by approaching his estranged de facto partner and had tried to force his way inside her house by smashing glass panels.
His former partner desperately pushed against the door and her son, 6, said to Biggs: “Tyrone, please don’t come in and hurt us.”
He left and she later told police: “I was petrified. I was seeing my life before my eyes.”
Magistrate Megan Greenwood was told in police facts the offences committed by Biggs included repeatedly punching his cousin after an argument on Wednesday afternoon.
Biggs, who was intoxicated, smashed a ceramic pot on his cousin’s head which caused a cut at the back.
His cousin ran inside, locked the door and called the police.
Biggs, 39, of Garoogong Road, Springdale Heights, has been charged with using a carriage service threatening to kill, assault occasioning actual bodily harm, being armed with intent to commit an indictable offence, aggravated break and enter, intimidation and four counts of breaching an apprehended violence order.
Solicitor Bill Roberts applied for bail and said that it was all about allegations at present.
Mr Roberts said all the victims lived in Albury and Biggs could live with a friend at Wollongong.
“He would agree not to enter Albury except for court,” Mr Roberts said.
But Ms Greenwood described Biggs as an unacceptable risk and said: “It is my view the victims are in need of real protection.”
Biggs was remanded in custody to reappear on April 22 after the preparation of a police evidence brief.
One of the charges involves an alleged home invasion on a woman Biggs had known for about 10 months.
He allegedly went through an unlocked door and assaulted her.
Biggs cannot contact his former partner but she received a text message from him on February 10.
It said: “Get outta my town today.”
Two days earlier he rang and told her: “I am five minutes away.
“I am coming with an axe. I am going to smash up your house and kill all the guys in there.”
