A man allegedly punched his partner, dragged her by the hair, threw her into a wall and kicked her in the head before driving away with their one-year-old daughter.
The unemployed Wanniassa man, who is not being named to protect the alleged victim's identity, was refused bail when he appeared in the ACT Magistrates Court on Friday.
The 35-year-old man is charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm, property damage, and two counts of common assault. He has not entered pleas.
Documents tendered to the court say the couple lived together for nearly three years until late 2018, and had been in an "on again, off again" relationship since.
On Tuesday afternoon the woman, who intended to end the relationship, packed her belongings and those of their daughter, and left them by the back door of her home.
Court documents say the man went to the woman's home the same day and, upset by her plan to leave with their daughter, took the luggage to a female friend's home.
On Wednesday, the man's friend sent the woman photos of the luggage and told her she could come and get it.
Later that day, the woman picked up her belongings and packed them and the couple's daughter into a car belonging to the man's friend.
The woman drove the car to the man's Wanniassa home and parked outside about 12.15pm, court documents say.
The man is accused of running out of his home, opening the car door and breaking the woman's phone by taking it and throwing it onto the ground.
He allegedly punched the woman in the mouth and took the keys from the car's ignition before repeatedly yelling at her to get out of the car and hitting her thigh with the point of the keys.
Court documents say the man then pulled the woman out of the car by her hair, and dragged her about 30 metres into his home, leaving their daughter in the car unsupervised.
Once inside, the man allegedly picked the woman up by the hair and threw her into a wall with such force that a hole formed.
While the woman was lying on the ground, the man allegedly kicked her in the head.
Court documents say the woman then heard a car door slam and a car "tear away". When she got up and ran outside, the man, their daughter and the car were gone.
Police arrived at the home about half an hour after the alleged incident and found the woman with a large bump and redness above her left eyebrow, and a swollen lip with dried blood on it.
Officers also spoke to the man's roommate, who reported seeing him "throw [the woman] into the wall".
About 5.20pm on Wednesday, police found the man, the couple's daughter and the car in Queanbeyan.
The man allegedly jumped over a fence and ran from officers when they arrived, but was arrested about 5.28pm.
He was extradited to the ACT on Thursday and appeared in court on Friday morning, barefoot and wearing a shirt with a hole in it.
The man's lawyer, Georgina Meikle, proposed several strict conditions in applying for him to be granted bail.
Ms Meikle said the alleged victim had arranged emergency housing and the man did not know where she now lived.
She also said the man acted as a carer for his roommate, and him being remanded in custody would have a negative impact on the roommate.
Prosecutor James Melloy opposed bail, saying no conditions could ameliorate the risk of the man committing offences and failing to attend court.
Mr Melloy said the man had previously fled the ACT to avoid court proceedings and police had "grave concerns" he would do so again if granted bail.
He also described the man's criminal history as "abhorrent" and alleged that the man's "network of associates" had been contacting the alleged victim, who was "terrified".
Special Magistrate Theresa Warwick refused the man bail. She described the allegations as "very serious" and said no conditions would prove satisfactory.
The man is due back in court next month.
