NSW man charged with beating and choking partner in 12-hour ordeal

A woman is being treated for a range of injuries after she was allegedly beaten and choked while being held against her will by her partner in the NSW Hunter region.

Police attended a unit at Kurri Kurri around 8pm on Friday after reports of a domestic incident.

When they arrived, they found a 39-year-old woman who had suffered a number of injuries and bruises to her body, head and neck.


She was taken for medical treatment.

It’s understood her 36-year-old partner broke an AVO order and went to the home and held his partner there against her will over a 12-hour period.

He was arrested and taken to Cessnock Police Station.

He has since been charged with ten offences including intentional and reckless choking, assault, assault with act of indecency, detaining a person with intent to obtain advantage occasioning actual bodily harm and contravening an AVO.

He was refused bail to appear before Maitland Local Court on Saturday.
