A man has been charged with a range of domestic violence offences and breaching his bail in Coffs Harbour, NSW Police say.

On Wednesday (4 October 2017), the man was arrested in relation to the alleged breaches and charged at Coffs Harbour Police Station.

He was refused bail by police and appeared at Coffs Harbour Local Court the same day where he was granted conditional bail.

After being released the man allegedly assaulted his 21-year-old girlfriend by choking, slapping and kicking the woman.

Police from Coffs/Clarence Local Area Command conducted extensive inquiries for two days to locate the man, arresting him about 8.15pm yesterday at a motel on the Pacific Highway, Korora.

He had also allegedly breached his existing bail conditions by leaving the Coffs Harbour area.

These charges also relate to alleged domestic assaults against the same woman which occurred in September.
