The prosecution dropped the assault charge after the accused agreed to be bound over

A Filipino husband charged with assault for breaking his wife’s finger and biting her arm in a fit of rage last August has been bound over for $2,000 in Kowloon City Court.

The bindover deal was reached on Monday, Apr 20, between defendant F.C. and the prosecution, prior to the defendant’s appearance before Magistrate Siu Suk-yu.

The prosecution had earlier charged the defendant with assault occasioning bodily harm for hurting his wife during an argument at 1am on Aug 31 last year. The charge was dropped following the bindover deal.
The court heard that F.C. had grabbed the hand of his wife violently during an argument  that she broke her left index finger. Then he bit his wife’s left arm.

After the assault, the defendant ran away, the prosecution said. The victim reported the assault and went to a hospital for checkup and treatment of her injuries.

A medical report said the wife suffered bruises on her left forehead, left arm, left hand and index finger. There was also swelling in her left index finger and redness in her left ring finger.

As a result, she had to take a two-day sick leave from work.

On Jan 9 this year, the defendant surrendered to the Tsimshatsui Police Station and admitted that he lost his temper during the argument with his wife.

The prosecutor said the couple married in 2009 but lived in separate addresses.

Magistrate Siu ordered F.C. to be bound over for $2,000 for 18 months and to pay court cost of $300.

“Your offense is serious and it happened inside your home. I hope this will be the first and last time you commit this offense. If you re-offend within 18 months, you will face a jail term,” the magistrate said.
