A man will face court after being extradited from Queensland following investigations into a number of domestic violence assaults in Coffs Harbour.

Strike Force Walcer was formed by Coffs and Clarence Local Area Command to investigate a number of assaults of a 20-year-old woman in Coffs Harbour.

Between the evening of the 13 February 2017 and 14 February 2017, a 20-year-old woman contacted police after allegedly being detained and assaulted.

Following investigations, on Tuesday 21 February 2017, strike force officers travelled to Queensland after being granted a warrant for the arrest of a 24-year-old man.

On Thursday 23 February 2017, strike force officers accompanied the Nerang Criminal Investigation Branch as they arrested the man at a home at Theatre Drive, Benowa.

Officers allegedly located and seized a number of items during an extraterritorial warrant.

The man appeared at Southport Magistrates Court where the man’s extradition to New South Wales was granted.

On Friday 24 February 2017 the man was taken to Byron Bay Police Station where he was charged with take and detain for advantage inflicting actual bodily harm (domestic violence related), assault occasioning actual bodily harm x 3 (domestic violence related), common assault x 2, and stalk and intimidate with intent to cause fear (domestic violence related).

He appeared at Byron Bay Local Court where he was refused bail to reappear at Coffs Harbour Local Court on Wednesday 1 March, 2017.
