Man accused of booting dog to death, bashing women in savage attack

A MAN has gone on an alcohol-fuelled rampage, booting a dog to death and bashing two women, knocking one of them unconscious in a shocking domestic violence-related attack in Alice Springs.

The 33-year-old man is accused of punching his 23-year-old ex-partner at a town camp on Wednesday before belting a second 30-year-old woman with a chair as she tried to intervene.

The older woman, believed to be a relative of the man, was knocked unconscious in the brutal assault.


The man then allegedly kicked and stomped on a dog until it died.

He was arrested on Thursday morning and has since been charged with committing an act of animal cruelty, assault and breaching a domestic violence order.
