An allegedly drunken bricklayer is accused of telling police he would sexually assault them and murder their children before biting an officer.
In court documents, it is alleged Boi Peter Mabor began banging loudly on the front door of a home in Coombs late on Saturday night (7 August), yelling that he wanted to be let in.
The resident of this home, who told Mabor to leave, would later tell police he had never met the 32-year-old before.
Police arrived and believed Mabor was drunk as he was slurring his speech, was unsteady on his feet and “ranting nonsense”.
The officers asked him why he was at the house, to which he allegedly replied, “He’s a rich c–t, and I have nothing”.
He allegedly tried to grab the officers’ equipment before the officers pulled him to the ground and handcuffed him.
“He was yelling at police words to the effect of ‘I’ll rape you and kill your kids’, ‘I’ll f–k you up so you never have kids’, and ‘I’ll kill you’ repeatedly,” police allege.
Mabor allegedly hit out and kicked the officers, then tried to bite one before spitting towards him.
When he was taken to a police car, he allegedly bit one officer on the arm then spat at the other.
Mabor, who lives in Coombs, applied for bail in the ACT Magistrates Court on Monday (9 August). Bail was opposed by the prosecution based on the likelihood of him committing other offences.
His Legal Aid lawyer, Georgia Le Couteur, said he was the primary income earner for his family and also sent money back to his extended family in Sudan who were affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.
She said when he was not consuming alcohol, he could be a law-abiding citizen.
Magistrate Robert Cook said Mabor had a lengthy criminal history and had been sentenced to jail in the past for violence.
He told Mabor the “real issue” was that he was unable to maintain a peaceful existence with the community when alcohol became involved.
However, he said the risks could be mitigated by significant bail conditions, including not drinking alcohol or using illegal drugs.
Magistrate Cook granted bail. Mabor will appear again in court on 30 August to enter pleas to charges of assaulting a frontline community service provider and resisting a Territory public official.
