Police could be set to push ahead with the assault charges against Manly center Dylan Walker.

Walker was charged with common assault occasioning actual bodily harm after an alleged incident with his partner, Alexandra Ivkovic.

Police have claimed that there is at least one witness and that Ivkovic had to be treated ny paramedics.

The police have taken out an apprehended violence order on behalf of Ivkovic. This states that he can’t assault, threaten, stalk, harass or intimidate her or damage property belonging to her.

The case has been adjourned until December 18.

According to The Daily Telegraph journalist Dean Richie, the police are interested in pressing ahead with the matter, despite Ivkovic keen to retract her statement.

“About three years ago they brought in this legislation that says we can now pursue a matter if we think something has happened,” Ritchie told Big Sports Breakfast on Wednesday morning.

“Previously, if a victim recanted then basically it was all bets off. Now they can pursue it.

“I know of a person who witnessed this, this person said it wasn’t great. He’s happy to be involved, he doesn’t want to speak to the media but he wants to push ahead.

“He said he was abused by Dylan Walker when he approached the situation.

“It’s an ugly situation. We haven’t heard the end of it. I still think the police will push ahead.’’

  1. Wow! Who would have thought they would go ahead with it even without the partner’s statement?
    And here I had it on good authority that the $$$ would stop the law dead in its tracks.
    I’m glad they’re going ahead with this as any sort of DV needs to be abolished, no matter who the person is.

    • You do realise that Domestic Violence Orders are heard to a different standard and are civil matters. Police only have to provide evidence to the standard of “on the balance of probabilities”.

      If she has injuries and there is a witness the chances of Walker getting away with no order is very slim.

  2. Good. Manly paying her off did nothing to stop the cops from charging this grub. Pathetic player and pathetic club for trying to buy her silence.

    • You really did well in English at school didn’t you. You also seem to forget as a Maori, Russell Packer is just as dark skinned as Walker. People usually do play the race card when they’ve lost an argument. Back in your box meth boy. And you’re not allowed to come out until manly get out of the bottom 4 – so hopefully we don’t hear from you for about a decade or so.

      • Actually it’s a fairly well structured argument – something you seem to fail at, just like everything else. Someone owns you in an argument and all you can do is throw around a non existing race card? Is that YOUR best? Ring that lifeline number above meth boy, it may be your only hope.

    • If by inconsistencies you are referring to previous DV cases that haven’t been followed up by the police, there has been changes in legislation over the years to make it a lot easier for the police to go ahead with charges even if the partner recants their story.
      I believe the main reason they brought this in is that a lot of partners were taking back their statements for fear of reprisal from the abuser.
      Hopefully, this will lead to more DV abusers being taken away from their victims and more safety for the victims themselves.

  4. AE47, you’ve reminded me of someone since you started posting here, and I think I just worked it out. You’re Dale Carnegie aren’t you?
    Great book by the way (How to win friends and influence people).

    • Fair call on the spoons, and as a Parra supporter I’ve got to wear that 1, but coach comments, really?
      Who has 2 “head coaches”, 1 of which is paid to stay away, although in fairness, he must be extraordinarily talented, given everyone else stays away for free.
      Trent to hooker, because you’ve been paying him, and what’s he been doing to your club?

  5. Cut it out AngryBirdbasher47, What is DV anyway❓❓❓❓❓❓❓ The way you have been carrying on CrankyEagle 47 proves you once had VD and never got a cure for it. Obviously Gon0rrhea has reached your brain and it is permanently effected. 🤯🤮😖🤢😳

    • I don’t think it’s VD chook, that would imply angrybudgie has had sex at some stage of his life and we all know how unlikely that is. It’s more likely hard core long term meth use or fetal alcohol syndrome.

  6. ZT what the hell? Have you gone that PC that you remove any controversial comments. True that that fool angryeagle should be buggered off for his idiot comments but this site is becoming a joke.

  7. Police have had the power to pursue an offender like Walker even if the partner retracts her statement or refuses to give evidence in court for decades. With a statement from the victim, eye witnesses and photos the Police photographed as evidence of injury then Walker can still receive a guilty verdict.

    The lady did not hurt herself and the eye witness account will match that of the victims statement. The NRL needs to act on this Walker domestic violence situation. Walker has crossed a forbidden boundary of decency within the mind. Everyone knows his partner is trying to protect his football career but she leaves the door open now for him, to really hurt her next time he crosses the boundary. Her actions somewhere down the track may lead to the aggressor to commit a far more serious crime, perhaps even manslaughter but as this person is to scared to attack men it would be womanslaughter.👈👴👎
