Naaman was refused bail on Tuesday at Bansktown Local Court after a magistrate heard of her ‘violent’ criminal history, which included motor vehicle theft, common assault and destroying property. 

Naaman was allegedly on parole after serving two years and nine months in prison for robbery when she subjected the 14-year-old to the terrifying ordeal.
