A 29-year-old man is not to contact his de facto wife after allegedly punching her in the head and threatening to kill her.
Dean Phillip John Perry, who has pleaded not guilty, is to live with his parents in Bolwarra Heights as part of bail granted to him in court on Thursday.
Perry, of Cambridge Avenue, Raymond Terrace, was taken into custody on Wednesday night following an alleged domestic assault.
Police documents tendered to the court said Perry came home drunk about 11pm, smashed plates and yelled at his de facto wife of 10 years.
He allegedly punched her in the head several times, grabbed her by the throat and threatened to kill her.
The court heard Perry threw the woman’s phone and smashed it before he took his youngest child and ran into a bedroom.
Police said when they arrived the woman was distraught.
They found Perry in the bedroom where he yelled: “What the f—-, get out of my house you c——, I’ve done nothing”.
To avoid arrest Perry allegedly attempted to place the child between himself and police.
Police used force to arrest Perry, who broke a light in the police paddy wagon after repeatedly kicking it.
Perry’s solicitor said his client would vehemently defend the five charges.
He pleaded not guilty to common assault, intimidation, resist police and two counts of property damage.
Magistrate John Chicken ordered a family member deposit $750, which will be forfeited if Perry breaches bail.
