A Nowra man has been granted bailed after he allegedly broke into his ex-partner's home before assaulting her partner.
Daniel Mohinder Gannon, 30, was released after spending more than two months on remand.
Documents tendered to court said Gannon and his former partner were in a 12-year relationship before it ended in August last year.
Police allege Gannon went to the Woonona home of his ex-partner on May 11 at about 2.45am and he entered the house by opening the garage roller door.
Gannon's ex-girlfriend was allegedly awoken by the sound of Gannon going up the stairs prompting her to call out, "who is it" before she heard the garbled voice of her former partner.
The woman tried to wake up her current partner who was asleep next to her before she got out of bed and stood at the bedroom door to prevent Gannon entering.
The woman allegedly told Gannon to leave several times but he refused.
The woman's boyfriend woke up after hearing the voices before Gannon allegedly told him to "get up" before he removed his shirt and left it on the floor.
The boyfriend could allegedly smell alcohol on Gannon before the trio walked down the stairs.
Police allege once Gannon reached the bottom step he began to assault the boyfriend and they fell to the ground near the dining area.
The woman attempted to stop the alleged assault but her boyfriend got a cut on his head.
The woman ran upstairs to get her phone and called triple-0.
The alleged fight between Gannon and the man continued and he was repeatedly told to leave.
He eventually left but allegedly assaulted the man again, injuring him.
Gannon eventually got into a Nissan X-Trail parked directly in front of the couple's home and yelled at them as he reversed up the driveway and drove off.
Police went to the couple's home where they photographed the scene including alleged damage to the walls and dining chair, blood on the floor and wall and the shirt left behind, which was also seized.
The boyfriend sustained injuries to his skull, redness and swelling to his left cheek, redness to his nose, grazed and red marks to his back and grazes to his knuckles, the documents said.
Gannon presented himself to Sutherland Police Station about 1pm the next day.
He was charged with aggravated break and enter with the intention to commit actual bodily harm, assault occasioning actual bodily harm, damaging property, common assault and contravening a restriction in an apprehended violence order.
In court on Wednesday, defence lawyer Matt Ward suggested Gannon could abide by a house arrest at his father's Orient Point home.
Mr Ward said Gannon, who previously worked as a teacher and a support worker, had already spent two months in custody and if was refused bail he would likely spend longer on remand waiting to finalise his court case than the sentence he would receive.
Magistrate Claire Girotto's main concern was the protection of the complainants as Gannon had allegedly breached his bail and AVO by going to their house.
However she said that risk could be mitigated by allowing Gannon to leave home only in the company of his parents. She said alcohol appeared to a "common denominator" and therefore he is not allowed to consume alcohol whilst on bail.
He is not allowed to enter Wollongong unless for legal reasons and must report daily.
The case was adjourned to August 4.
