Woman strangled, suffocated in shocking domestic violence attack

A WOMAN has been beaten, strangled and suffocated in a terrifying domestic violence incident at a home north of Brisbane.

Police said they received a triple zero call advising them of a domestic disturbance at a home in Kallangur about 10pm on Friday.

When they arrived at the house, they found a woman in her 20s with facial injuries after being violently attacked.


Police said the woman had allegedly been seriously assaulted, choked and suffocated during the incident.

Following a struggle, police arrested a 38-year-old man inside the home and placed him in the back of a police vehicle.

It’s alleged a police officer was later attacked by the man after opening the car door.

The man allegedly punched the officer in the head multiple times, causing him to fall to the ground, before trying to run away.

Other officers gave chase, however, and detained the man nearby.

He has since been charged with a list of domestic violence offences, including strangulation, wilful damage and assault occasioning bodily harm, as well serious assault police and escape lawful custody.

The man has been remanded in custody and is due to appear in Pine Rivers Magistrates Court on Monday.

The woman was treated by paramedics for contusions and bruising to her face and body while the police officer was treated for facial bruising and a split lip.
