Teenager Accused Of Bashing

September 24th, 2016

Police released this photo of Hamlyn Heights man Wally Janeczko.

A young Corio man has fronted court over an alleged attack that left a man looking like this.

The image shows the extent of Hamlyn Heights man Wally Janeczko’s injuries immediately after an alleged assault by a stranger in his home.

Kyle Elston, 19, of Lofty Ct, Corio, was arrested early yesterday in relation to an alleged home violent home invasion and then faced Geelong Magistrates’ Court.

Police will allege Mr Elston visited the Chaucer St address on August 22, where he threatened Mr Janeczko’s 93-year-old father with a knife before flooding the property to lure him outside.

They will allege he then entered the home and set upon Mr Janeczko, beating him in the head in front of his father and leaving him injured with severe bruising and swelling.

He allegedly used a knife to cut the 67-year-old’s wallet from his back pocket.

At the time, Mr Janeczko’s father ran out of the home to get help from a neighbour who raised the alarm.

Days later a bruised and battered Mr Janeczko told the media he was “in a lot of pain” after the alleged attack which he believed had lasted more than 20 minutes.

Mr Elston has been charged with aggravated burglary, armed robbery, intentionally cause injury, recklessly cause injury and assault with a weapon.

During his filing hearing on Friday he wore a black T-shirt and jeans and looked around the courtroom where a woman, who is believed to be known to him, held a baby up to the dock.

His lawyer, Stephanie Mawby, said her client had not been in custody before.

When asked by Magistrate Ann McGarvie about any custody management issues, the court was told Mr Elston was withdrawing from ice, marijuana and alcohol.

Mr Elston made no application for bail and was remanded in custody for a committal mention on January 13.

Ms McGarvie said Mr Elston’s lawyer was likely to apply for bail before that date.

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
