A woman in Victoria, Australia, attacked her housemate with super glue and set fire to his jacket before beating him with a prosthetic leg on Easter Sunday, Ballarat police say. The woman, 48, has been charged with three assault offences stemming from the alleged attack in their house in Sebastopol.
Her 64-year-old housemate arrived at Ballarat Base Hospital's emergency department with his eyes glued shut and one ear filled with glue late on Sunday night. The woman has been charged with intentionally causing serious injury, recklessly causing injury and reckless conduct endangering serious injury and bailed to appear in Ballarat Magistrates Court on May 2.
Ballarat Criminal Investigation Unit Detective Sergeant Steve Howard said the 64-year-old presented himself to emergency department late on Sunday night with the unusual injuries, plus a number of other minor injuries. “He’s shown up at emergency with his eyes full of super glue and some in his ear,” Detective Sergeant Howard said.
“We’re not sure what’s happened but it’s pretty obvious he didn’t do this to himself.” He said the man was taken to an ear and eye specialist before being admitted to the Base Hospital for further treatment. Ballarat Health Services spokesman Daniel Anderson said the man remained in hospital in a stable condition. Police said a woman was currently assisting them with their inquiries.
