A Kingswood man who allegedly glassed a woman to the face after he was asked to leave a Penrith hotel has been denied bail.

Jaydan McBain-Brown appeared before Penrith Local Court charged with ‘reckless wounding’ and ‘assault police’.

The court heard McBain-Brown was allegedly heavily intoxicated and had been asked to leave when he grabbed two drinks and stumbled towards the car park.

Before he got far, a female staff member intervened telling him he was required to hand back the glasses.

He became argumentative and after the woman successfully removed one from his grip, McBain-Brown allegedly retaliated, punching her to the left side of her face causing the glass to smash.

He is also alleged to have punched a police officer.

Despite offering to report daily, abide by a curfew and to live at a Kingswood address Magistrate Brian van Zuylen denied the accused’s release citing the “extremely serious allegations”.

He is due to face court again on Tuesday, February 19.
