A 27-year-old alleged assault victim has described how she felt alone when she was inappropriately touched by a man while walking home from a party in Wickham last year. Leslie Kurt Diamond, 35, is currently on trial at Karratha Magistrates Court over an alleged unlawful and indecent assault in Wickham last year. It is alleged at about 2am on December 5, 2020, Mr Diamond placed his hand on the alleged victim and reached between her legs. The 27-year-old school teacher was walking home from a party with her partner and Mr Diamond when the alleged assault occurred. Breaking down in tears as she gave her evidence on Thursday, the victim said she felt all alone when the assault happened. “I was so shocked and I didn’t know what to say,” she said. “I just felt very panicked and that I had to leave. “I knew (my partner) couldn’t help me at the time because he was quite intoxicated.” Under cross examination, Mr Diamond’s defence lawyer Ashleigh Antoine suggested the victim had consumed more alcohol than she remembered, which affected her memory of the night. The victim disagreed and said she liked to “take it easy” during the school term as drinking affected her job. The court was shown Mr Diamond’s hour-long video interview after he was arrested at Roebourne Police Station on March 8 this year. During the interview, Mr Diamond said he drank several beers and did about six shots of absinthe at the party. He also recalled participating in drinking games. The accused said he did not remember leaving the party or leaving with anyone but remembered arriving home and walking inside. When asked by police if he knew the victim, Mr Diamond said “I think that’s my friend’s girlfriend” and said he previously saw her at a motocross event. The victim’s mother, partner, the host of the party and a Roebourne police officer also gave evidence during the first day of the hearing. The trial will continue on December 10.
