Wanted man charged with DV offences in Sydney

A man, who was wanted on an arrest warrant, will appear in court today charged over two separate alleged domestic-related assaults.

Police will allege in court that on Thursday 20 August 2020, a 30-year-old man punched his partner in the face and choked her while at a home in Roselands, before leaving the scene.

The 29-year-old woman was treated by NSW Ambulance paramedics for a facial laceration.

The incident was reported to police, with officers from Campsie Police Area Command conducting initial investigations, before assistance was sought from the South West Metropolitan Region Domestic Violence High-Risk Offenders Team.

Following extensive inquiries, with assistance from Central Metropolitan Operation Support Group, a 30-year-old man was arrested at a hotel on Wentworth Street, Sydney, about 9.30am yesterday (Monday 28 September 2020).

The Kingsford man was taken to Surry Hills Police Station, where it was discovered he was suffering a small laceration to his side. He was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital under police guard for treatment.

Officers from Surry Hills Police Area Command established a crime scene at the hotel room and commenced an investigation.

Subsequent inquiries revealed the man and woman were at the hotel on Sunday evening (27 September 2020), when the man allegedly choked and punched her, before he sustained a wound to his torso.

Upon discharge from hospital, the man was returned to Surry Hills Police Station where an outstanding arrest warrant for breach of bail was executed and he was charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm (DV), common assault (DV) and intentionally choke person without consent (DV).

Additionally, he was charged by officers from Surry Hills Police Area Command with two counts of intentionally choke person without consent (DV), for the alleged incident on Sunday.

He was refused bail to appear before Central Local Court today (Tuesday 29 September 2020).
