A man has been charged after allegedly assaulting and pouring petrol on a woman during a domestic incident at Casino overnight Sunday (November 25).

About 2am, a 24-year-old man and his partner, a 23-year-old woman, were at a party at a home on Melaleuca Place, Casino, when they became involved in an argument.

During the argument the man allegedly poured a bottle of petrol over the woman and threatened to set her alight.

The man produced a knife and chased the woman from the home before assaulting her, by punching her and pulling her hair.

The woman then ran from the scene and later contacted police.

About 4am, police from Richmond Police District attended a home on Boronia Crescent, Casino, in order to arrest the man.

While police were attempting to arrest him, they say several aggressive males attempted to hinder them, resulting in police resorting to pepper spray to disperse the group.

The 24-year-old was arrested and taken to Casino Police Station where he was charged with common assault, being armed with intent, using an explosive substance with intent to burn, and breaching bail.

He was refused bail to appear at Lismore Local Court today (Monday 26 November 2018).
