Sydney man refused bail after allegedly ‘king hitting’ John Totsis


The man who allegedly king hit John Totsis in a wild road rage incident on Peel St in Belmore, Sydney, on May 28 this year, has been refused bail.

Totsis was rushed to St George Hospital after the attack with a fractured skull and brain bleed. He has been recovering in hospital ever since.

According to The Daily Telegraph, Din Decevic, 34, a mobile crane operator, was charged with reckless grievous bodily harm following the violent altercation with Totsis.

Detectives attended a unit in Sproule St, Lakemba and arrested Decevic on Monday, June 19. He applied for bail at Bankstown Local Court on Thursday, June 22, where he appeared by video link.

The court heard the altercation was sparked by Decevic, driving a Raptor, and Totsis, driving a Hyundai, both beeping their horns at each other.

Totsis reversed to have a conversation with Decevic then attempted to drive off, but the driver blocked his way after reversing on an angle.

Magistrate Glenn Walsh said Decevic then approached Totsis and is alleged to have punched him in the face. The police prosecutor told the court Totsis lost consciousness and hit his head on the road when he fell back.

Mr Walsh said Decevic allegedly lied to police about who was driving and told officers that Totsis had allegedly threatened to kill him and he was “crazy and on ice.”

Mr Walsh refused bail and the matter was adjourned to Burwood Local Court on August 16.
