A Perth model convicted of glassing a woman in a Northbridge bar has become the first woman to be banned from entering a pub or club in WA.
A police spokesman said that Eva Grace Scolaro, 24, who is listed on a talent website as a model, actress and singer, had been convicted of unlawful wounding over the attack on a 26-year-old woman at a Lake Street venue in March last year.
Police said that during an argument, Scolaro grabbed the woman by the back of her dress and poured a drink on to her head. Scolaro then spun the woman around and smashed a glass into her face, leaving the victim with a deep cut to her left cheek and cuts to her forehead that needed stitches.
Scolaro, who will be sentenced in Perth Magistrate's Court on April 14, is the latest person to be handed a prohibition order which restricts her from entering any bar or nightclub in the State for two years.
The prohibition order legislation allows Police Commissioner Karl O'Callaghan to apply to Director of Liquor Licensing Barry Sargeant to stop people from visiting or being employed in licensed premises in WA.
Police must prove it is in the public interest to have the person banned and provide evidence of their criminal convictions or details of their involvement, or suspected involvement, in serious or organised crime.
In granting the order, Mr Sargeant said it was "in the public interest" to ban Scolaro from pubs and clubs.
In her profile on starnow.com, Scolaro is listed as having been a V8 supercar grid girl, a dancer for the Perth Wildcats and the Perth Glory, and a participant in sports model competitions.
"I have been singing since I can remember," her profile reads. "I am currently involved with AccentWest to improve my presenting and MC skills. I am fabulous with a microphone and great at any ad-lib situation. I'm never lost for words."
Scolaro, of Lesmurdie, is the ninth person to be handed a prohibition order, along with veteran Coffin Cheaters bikie Eddy Withnell and former Northbridge nightclub owner Nunzio La Bianca.
Mr O'Callaghan has asked the Government for the power to ban thugs and organised crime figures from entering licensed venues for up to six months without the need to apply to Mr Sargeant for a prohibition order.Scolaro did not return calls yesterday.
