A man who slashed a paramedic on her way home from work on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula should be jailed, prosecutors say. Adam Bardic, 48, slashed the woman twice with a box cutter in front of her young daughters as she picked up fish and chips for dinner on July 13 last year. He pinned the 46-year-old to her car and cut her, leaving a deep 15cm long gash across her upper chest before casually riding away on his bike while she compressed the wound and called triple-0. In a pre-sentence hearing on Monday, prosecutors called for Bardic to be handed an immediate prison term. He’s been in custody for more than a year awaiting sentence. Bardic’s lawyers have instead asked that he be placed on a community corrections order, and that any prison terms be served concurrently. County Court Judge Duncan Allen heard Bardic suffered an acquired brain injury after being bashed with a baseball bat in 2013, and that he required a skull reconstruction and neurological rehabilitation after two further beatings in 2014. Both Bardic’s parents and one of his two daughters have died while he has been in custody.
