A 20-year-old Broome woman has been hit with a 50-hour community-based order after she attacked a woman and her mother with a metal pole in a jealousy-fueled attack. Alicia Roe appeared in Broome Magistrates Court on Monday, January 16, charged with one count of common assault and one of assault occasioning bodily harm. The incident occurred on August 29, 2022, when Roe and an unnamed co-accused person went to a Broome address to confront a woman about a conflict involving a man. Driven by what Roe’s lawyers said was “jealousy”, the 20-year-old approached the woman and told her to “fight me now” before swinging a metal pole at her. Roe and her co-accused then proceeded to attack the woman by pulling her hair and punching her. The victim’s mother was immediately turned upon by the co-accused when she left the house before Roe landed a heavy punch to the mother’s face, causing her to fall to the ground. The victim’s mother suffered swelling to the face and was taken to Broome Hospital. Roe pleaded guilty to both charges relating to the assault and was handed a 50-hour community-based order. Community-based orders allow offenders to address their criminal behaviour by undergoing treatment of taking part in education, vocational or personal development programs.
