A Waikiki man who allegedly shot a woman in the face last April was arrested by Rockingham Detectives at the weekend.

They say the woman lost part of her gum and was left with a scar on her face.

Inquiries have led to the arrest of a 40-year-old Waikiki man, who has been charged with acts occasioning bodily harm.

He will appear at Rockingham Magistrates Court on April 4.
