A Kununurra man has pleaded guilty to threatening his neighbours with a cricket bat, claiming he was frustrated with the number of break-ins into his unit. Stuart Gordon, 48, appeared in court last Friday charged with one count of being armed or pretending to be armed in a way that may cause fear after he threatened a group of people at his unit complex about 7.50pm on September 21 last year. Gordon was found to have walked over to his neighbour’s unit while a person at the property was being attended to by paramedics, armed with the bat, and said, “You don’t live here, I live here”. The prosecution said this intimidated all present, including the ambulance officers. Defence lawyer Anne Marie O’Neil told Magistrate Colin Roberts her client had previously had issues with the neighbours and frequently had to call the police. She said Gordon had heard a loud disturbance and feared a break-in. She also said he claimed he never intended to intimidate the paramedics, but accepted his behaviour was wrong. Mr Roberts sentenced Gordon to a spent conviction with a three-month conditional release order and a $400 fine. During his sentencing remarks he said he understood the predicament the accused was in and was glad Gordon was taking steps to move from the residence.
