A Camperdown man accused of using a pair of scissors to terrify his partner has been remanded in custody until November 21.
Trevor Victorsen, 45, of Kawana Court, was refused bail in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court after making a self-represented bail application.
He's been charged by Horsham police with 19 offences including intentionally and recklessly causing injury.
The court heard that on October 13 the man got in an argument with a woman when they were on the way to visit his parents in Camperdown.
When they returned from the visit, the argument turned physical.
The man is accused of backhanding the woman to the face, causing extreme pain and her nose to bleed.
He then got on top of her while holding scissors, which he held to the right side of her body near her right kidney, the court heard.
Police allege Mr Victorsen then grabbed the woman jaw, tried to open her mouth and then attempted to push the scissors inside her mouth.
The women eventually freed herself and ran out of the house.
Mr Victorsen is then accused of picking up a scooter which he threw at the woman in the presence of a child.
The woman told police she believed Mr Victorsen was going to kill her.
She called a friend, who turned up, but was warned to leave by Mr Victorsen or he would damage her car with a pole.
The visitor left after Mr Victorsen walked towards her with a pole.
Police allege Mr Victorsen went to the woman's home and climbed in through a window to get clothes and he continually contacted her on Facebook.
Police allege they met up and he again hit her with a backhander to the face.
