An 18-year-old woman has been fined for an assault on York Street after she hit a victim with her high-heel shoe. Last Thursday, Albany Magistrate’s Court heard an endorsed plea of guilty from Chanelle Tugba Kurtulus admitting to two counts of common assault. Kurtulus was fined $3000 for the attack that happened in the early hours of the morning. Police prosecutor Sergeant Peter Yuswack told the court that on March 28 Kurtulus was on a night out with a group of friends when they made a visit to the Istanbul Kebabs & Turkish Bakery on York Street. About 3am, the teenager was involved in an altercation when the victim pushed a friend behind them to protect the friend from an enraged Kurtulus. Kurtulus struck the victim to the upper-body five times with her high-heel shoe, Sgt Yuswack said. The victim received minor injuries including bruising and a cut to the left ear after being hit with the shoe’s heel. Magistrate Dianne Scaddan said Kurtulus used the shoe as a weapon and the assault was most likely underscored by alcohol consumption. She was denied a spent conviction.
