Man arrested over shovel assault

A LAVINGTON man was arrested on Thursday night and charged with an alleged shovel attack on a Wodonga man almost two years ago.

Nathan Turner, 24, of Henderson Street in Lavington, faced the Wodonga Magistrates Court yesterday charged with intentionally causing serious injury.

He was remanded for a committal mention on February 13.

Albury police arrested Turner before he was extradited to Wodonga yesterday.

Police said the charges related to a Wodonga man who suffered a fractured jaw after he was repeatedly hit with a shovel in Smythe Street, Wodonga, in February 2012.
