A 21 year-old has faced court charged over the alleged bashing of man who complained about noise at a neighbouring house in Cloverdale.

Harley Steven Emery was granted bail by a magistrate, following the weekend incident which left Raymond Ward, 41, with a fractured skull.

Mr Emery was charged by police with grievous bodily harm over the incident, which allegedly happened outside his parent’s house in Towie Street

He has been barred from visiting the address while he is on bail, as part of a condition that he not be within 100 metres of Mr Ward, who the court heard lives next door to Emery's parents.

Mr Ward’s was allegedly attacked about 2.30am on Saturday after he asked people at the neighbouring property to keep the noise down.

Police claim several people ran over to confront him before a 21-year-old man punched him “a number of times” and knocked him to the ground.

Mr Ward, 41, was then allegedly kicked repeatedly as he lay on the ground and received significant head injuries,

Mr Ward is in Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital receiving treatment for a fractured skull, facial fractures and bruising to his arms and body.

He was in a stable condition last night.
