Milorad Mitrovic, 40, of Pearcey Grove, applied for bail in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court yesterday. He is charged with recklessly causing injury, assault with a weapon, unlawful assault and breaching an intervention order.

He was denied bail and remanded in custody until a further hearing in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on March 6.

Magistrate Ian von Einem said the allegations against Mr Mitrovic were serious and if proven would have serious consequences.

He decided the new charges and a range of other charges would have to be dealt with before the accused man was released from custody.

Police alleged that last Saturday at 10.30pm Mr Mitrovic went to a Hopetoun Road address in Warrnambool and made threats to a woman with a knife and punched her eight to 10 times to the head.He also threatened to cut out her right eyeball and pour acid on her chest as he stood over her holding a knife.

He was in breach of an intervention order imposed in late December last year at the Broadmeadows Magistrates Court.

Police alleged Mr Mitrovic also emailed the victim, made threats and assaulted her at other times, which also breached the order.

The alleged victim contacted Warrnambool police on the accused’s mobile phone when he went to sleep.

Mr Mitrovic was on four lots of bail and failed to notify police he was going to Warrnambool, allegedly in breach of his bail conditions.

He has a large number of charges pending including burglary, theft, theft of a motorcar, causing criminal damage, possessing a controlled weapon and obtaining property by deception.

Police opposed bail yesterday, concerned Mr Mitrovic will continue to commit offences if released.

Police prosecutor Senior Constable Kevin Mullins said Mr Mitrovic was already facing six briefs of evidence in addition to the new Warrnambool offences.

Mr Mitrovic told the court if released on bail he would move in with his mother and care for her and was happy to abide by a strict curfew.

“I will turn up for court on March 6 and face the charges. I just want to get on with my life,” he said.
