The 39-year-old was found critically injured in bushland near her Aries Close home about 7.30pm.
Police believed Bonney’s extensive injuries were consistent with someone who had been hit by a car.
Major Crash Investigation officers scoured bushland on Wednesday to piece together how the tragedy occurred before later arresting 31-year-old Brayden Bradshaw.
He was charged with dangerous driving occasioning grievous bodily harm, failing to report an incident occasioning grievous bodily harm and failing to stop and ensure assistance received after incident occasioning grievous bodily harm.
Police alleged in Perth Magistrates Court that Bradshaw hit Bonney with his car and fled before he hid his ute in Bibra Lake.
The court was told Bradshaw allegedly returned to the scene hours later with his five-year-old son and contacted police, pretending to be a good Samaritan.
Police opposed Bradshaw’s application for bail, arguing he could tamper with or conceal evidence.
However, since his car has been seized the magistrate had no issue with letting him walk free.
The father stayed silent when asked whether he would fight the charges outside court. He will appear again in two weeks.
CCTV of a car driving in the area was released on Wednesday in the hopes of finding answers for Bonney’s reeling family.
Bonney’s parents, Robert Ugle and Ruth Bonney, said she left home about 5.30pm to walk to the nearby shopping centre – a regular routine for Bonney. About three hours later, police knocked on their door.
A frantic triple-0 call by a member of the public alerted emergency services to the injured woman.
Bonney was rushed to Royal Perth Hospital, where she remains in a serious but stable condition.

Her loved ones issued a heartbreaking plea for information on Wednesday, saying they were shocked.
“You hope and pray your family is safe every time they go out,” Ruth said, adding her daughter was a loving mother who only ever wanted the best for her children.
Bravely speaking through tears, Bonney’s 15-year-old daughter Alkira said all she wants is for her mother to be OK.
“It’s something you see out of a movie,” she told 7NEWS.
Major Crash Investigation acting inspector Adam Matson said police were called to the scene about 7.30pm.
“She was breathing, she was conscious, however, not really communicating,” he said.
“It is early in the investigation, however, her injuries are consistent with a vehicle being involved.”
Bonney’s family called for anyone who may have witnessed the incident to come forward.
Investigators are continuing to seek information regarding the crash and ask any dash-cam or mobile phone vision be uploaded directly via this link.
