Torquay man who assaulted partner in bathroom jailed

A MAN who hit his partner several times and assaulted a police officer has been jailed for four months.

The 43-year-old Torquay man pleaded guilty in the Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on Tuesday to a contravention of a domestic violence order and assaulting and obstructing a police officer.

The court heard that the man, who cannot be named under Queensland law, had assaulted his partner in the bathroom of a house in Torquay.

Police were called and arrived at the house where they found blood on the man's partner.

The court was told he had punched the woman multiple times in the face.

Police arrested the man when he became aggressive and struck an officer in the chest several times.

He also tried to put one of the officers in a headlock.

Magistrate Graeme Tatnell sentenced the man to four months in jail.

"The community is sick and tired of domestic violence," Mr Tatnell said.

"The community has had enough."
