HOUSE OF HORRORS: Woman beaten over two days, police allege

AN ABANDONED home on a busy Coast street became a woman's house of horrors after her partner allegedly held against her will and viciously assaulted her over a period of two days.

A 40-year-old man appeared in Maroochydore Magistrates Court today charged after the alleged incident with two counts each of assault occasioning bodily harm and breaching a police protection order and single counts of deprivation of liberty and common assault.

Appearing agitated and dressed in a medical gown, the man was denied bail as it was deemed he was at "unacceptable risk" of re-offending.

He is unable to be named to protect the identity of his 58-year-old partner.

In court documents sighted by the Daily the alleged victim claimed on July 22 her partner made her a coffee that caused her to pass out when she went to the Maud St, Maroochydore home he was squatting in.

She claimed she regained conciousness the next day and went with the man to St Vincent de Paul where he got a 14-inch bread knife.

The woman alleged once they returned to the home he locked her inside while he went to get cigarettes.

When he returned the man is accused of throwing things at the alleged victim and assaulting her multiple times by kicking her, slamming her face against a mirror, verbally abusing her and dropping his body weight onto her.

The woman told police her partner verbally assaulted her over the course of the alleged incident including telling her words to the effect of, "I'll cut your throat now you mole, I'll cut your f---ing eyes out and no-one will know or care".

It's alleged on the night of July 23, the man threw a set of keys at the woman who then tried to unlock the back door, but he dragged her back.

The next morning when the woman asked to use the toilet in the backyard, the man allegedly kicked her in the back forcing her out the door.

She collapsed while crossing the road where witnesses found her and called police and paramedics.

The woman was transported to Sunshine Coast University Hospital with contusions and lacerations which police allege "corroborate" her version of events.

A police protection order was put in place after the alleged incident which the man is accused of breaching twice by sending the woman threatening messages.

Police further allege while the man was in the watchhouse he said, "If I get out, what I will do is go stab that c---".

During the man's bail application, he loudly interjected numerous times claiming the woman was "setting him up".

He said the only allegation he agreed with was that he went to St Vincent de Paul, but denied getting a knife.

Speaking to media, Police Sergeant Arron Rose said enquires with local witnesses were "ongoing".

"Probably the last thing police really want to investigate (is) when anybody is held against their will for any period of time especially if there's a knife involved."

He urged anyone who may have heard or seen something in relation to the alleged incident to call police.
