ALBURY man Laurence John Alduca has been extradited to Victoria over his alleged stabbing of a woman at Leneva on Thursday morning.
Alduca, 58, of Crisp Street, was wearing a white protective bodysuit when he appeared yesterday morning in the dock at Albury Local Court.
Standing nearby in a similar suit was a Corrective Services officer who was wearing gloves.
Registrar Leonie Finn was told in tendered facts Alduca was single, had no dependants and received unemployment benefits.
It is alleged a woman accompanied him from Albury to Allans Flat on Thursday.
But they had an argument and Alduca was driving his car back towards Wodonga.
He allegedly stopped the vehicle and used a knife to stab the victim several times to her body.
She suffered five puncture wounds and was pushed out of the car by Alduca, who drove off and returned to Albury.
The woman sought medical help and was admitted to Albury hospital.
Victorian police circulated a description of Alduca’s car and he was stopped in Wagga Road at Lavington about 1.45pm.
He was arrested and taken into custody.
Victorian Police attended and Alduca was interviewed, with partial admissions allegedly made about the incident.
Albury police refused Alduca bail, deeming him an unacceptable risk and likely to endanger the victim and the community if released.
Wodonga detective Sen-Constable Justin Foots sought Alduca’s extradition and provided an arrest warrant.
The warrant related to charges of intentionally causing serious injury, assault with a weapon and recklessly causing injury.
Solicitor Jason Hanke said Alduca consented to his extradition and there was no application for bail.
Acting police prosecutor Sen-Constable Paul Merriman said Alduca was not under restraint in NSW and was able to be extradited.
Ms Finn refused bail and remanded Alduca to appear at Wodonga Magistrates Court.
No explanation was given about Alduca and the Corrective Services officer wearing the protective clothing.
