A LAVINGTON resident was bashed with a shotgun butt and in fear of being shot before a male assailant fired two shots into the roof of his unit, a court heard yesterday.
The victim was struck with the butt to the right hand, left arm and head for no apparent reason at his Jason Court home on Sunday.
Details of the attack were outlined in Albury Local Court yesterday.
Jessica Campbell, 24, of Mate Street, made an application for bail on charges of aggravated break and enter, committing a serious indictable offence with a weapon and dealing with property being the suspected proceeds of crime.
Magistrate Tony Murray was told Campbell is on suspended sentences and bonds for other matters.
She was refused bail and will reappear in court on October 28.
Campbell was arrested after being seen at the Gardens Medical Centre about 3.40pm on Monday.
When she was searched police found $1087 in cash, including $1000 in fresh $100 notes.
Campbell receives $460 fortnightly in a Newstart allowance.
She denied any knowledge of the incident at Lavington, but a witness had seen two men with Campbell as they left.
One man was wrapping a gun in a jumper and got in the back seat and the other man into the front passenger seat.
Campbell, who is disqualified from driving until 2025, was driving a Commodore which left the scene at high speed.
The victim and a woman had visited Campbell on Saturday.
They had been abused by her partner as they were leaving, Mr Murray was told.
The victim looked back and saw Campbell’s partner with what appeared to be a small pistol in his right hand.
On Sunday, the couple were at home with their door closed and locked when they saw a car pull up.
They saw Campbell and her partner walking towards their front door and heard it being kicked from the outside.
The door flew open and the partner came inside with a double barrel .410 shotgun.
It was pointed directly at the victim’s face and he asked what he had done wrong.
It was then he was hit with the gun butt three times and feared he would be shot.
His assailant continued abusing the victim before firing two shots into the ceiling.
When the victim looked up, he saw another man standing in the room.
Campbell and the two men quickly left, watched by a witness.
Gunpowder burns were found near the holes in the roof with wads from the shells found on the carpet.
