Domestic violence charges, Sunshine Coast


myPolice on 

A 54-year-old man has been charged with 13 serious domestic violence related offences following an alleged attack on a woman on the Sunshine Coast.

Around 10am on Friday, March 6, the man attended the woman's residence near Caloundra and allegedly physically assaulted her over a prolonged period.

During this time, the woman was allegedly strangled, causing her to lose consciousness, raped and held against her will.

The woman suffered significant injuries as a result of the alleged assault.

An investigation commenced after the woman escaped and reported the incident to police.

Around 8:30am on Monday, March 9, the woman was walking along Queen Street at Kings Beach with her young son when she noticed the man allegedly following her.

The man caught up with the pair and allegedly assaulted the woman while armed with a knife, stealing her handbag during the altercation.

The woman and boy sought refuge at a nearby business, without suffering any physical injuries.

On Monday afternoon, police executed a search warrant at a residence near Caloundra where the 54-year-old man was arrested and taken into custody.

The man has been charged with two counts each of rape, assault occasioning bodily harm and strangulation. He has also been charged with four counts of aggravated breach of a Domestic Violence Protection Order, one count each of deprivation of liberty, threatening violence and stealing.

He was denied police bail and will appear in Maroochydore Magistrates Court today.
