A Florey man's been refused bail after allegedly climbing through the window of his ex-girlfriend's home and trying to choke her.
32-year-old Amjed Hilal is accused of hiding outside the woman's bedroom and sneaking in in the early hours of the morning.
A struggle ensued where he allegedly held her down on the bed, slapped her until her mouth bled and later dragged her to the back of the house kicking and screaming.
Mr Hilal disputes his ex-girlfriend's claim he threatened to kill her, instead stating he slammed her against a kitchen wall to quote "calm her down."
The case is back in court in March.
