The decision to deny the man bail came after an investigation uncovered an alleged assault against a 22-month old girl.

Police responded to an alleged serious assault on the toddler with paramedics transporting her to hospital at around 10:45PM on November 12.

Magistrate Alana Duffy told the court he posed an “unacceptable risk” if her were to be released on bail.

The man is set to face the Latrobe Valley Magistrate’s Court on multiple charges at some point in April of 2022.
