In early July, the man and a woman are alleged to have started arguing before having a physical fight. A 29-year-old man allegedly physically assaulted the 35-year-old woman to her head and body before biting off the thumb of her right hand and fleeing the scene. Local police officers transported the woman to the community clinic, and later to the Alice Springs Hospital for treatment. The man remained at large until Friday, July 10 when he was located and arrested by police. He was charged with one count of unlawfully causing serious harm.
